Alternative suggestion. (Sorry if already mentioned).

Get an SSD for your root partition. Use the full disk as root and set a swap file instead of a swap partition. This is the default behavior in a lot of distros now if a root partition is not specified. The default swap file size is normally 2.1GB.

I'm unsure you can hibernate with that.

Seems to work fine for me. The only thing is that the swap has to be at
least the size of the RAM. So if you have 4GB Ram you need > 4GB swap to hibernate. So I would imaging this is where the .1GB comes in.
