That's essentially what I did send you.

Aaah - the "Sun May 8 13:51:57 UTC 2011" caused me to jump to the
conclusion it was an old, possible irrelevant log. No matter.

In mitigation - I have only three brains cells - one reads the list,
another is working, and the other one went out for coffee last week and
has not returned ;-p


During boot I see:
PM: Hibernation image not present or could not be loaded.

That is as it should be.

also during boot:

I "doubt" that is a problem.


Is that a Windoof or Linux bootloader on the Windoof partition??

Don't understand the question. GRUB is my boot manager.

Thanks - (it's a Linux bootloader) it's unlikely it would be relevant,
but I like to have an idea of all the factors that might be at play.


Your image_size is 2/5 of RAM and smaller than swap - so I can't see a
problem there. Before starting pm_tests, check whether your system
"thinks" it supports hibernation (under Debian).

$ cat /sys/power/state
and check that "disk" is listed, (meaning it can hibernate)

Then, find out what pm-hibernation switches are being used by:-
$ cat /var/log/pm-suspend.log | grep -m 1 commandline
and post the results

If "disk" was listed try:-
# echo disk > /sys/power/state
And wait... (hibernation is slow, dunno why people use it...)
Please post your results and any new, useful logs.

Notes: hibernation using the last command will probably cause errors on
resume. If hibernation was successful after grub starts you will see
something like "loading resume image, please wait" then the screen will
go black with a flashing cursor (you won't get the usual kernel messages
during the boot).


I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it
comes out.
