The problem with hibernation volumes is they need the correct preamble.

lphdisk has surprised its author a few times and worked with a few things
he thought it wouldn't - tho yes, they always turned out to be somebody

The keyword you want to search on is "swsusp" or "software suspend".  There
was a long discussion on it several months ago in this list, so searching 
the debian archives would be a good starter.

It was designed to help people who have 386 and 486 laptops that predated
suspend features, but, it also is claimed to just work, if your own are 
being bogus.
