I had that same problem with my Dell Inspiron 8600. I tried the
"hibernate" package, which someone suggested, and everything works fine,
now. I recall there were a couple of changes to the config that I was
told to make, but I think hibernate fixed the problem even without those
Try "hibernate" first. If that doesn't work, then I can go find the
changes I made.
One thing you probably do have to do is change one config file in
/etc/hibernate. There's a config file which basically lists the types of
hibernation to try and in what order. It's something like:
Or something like that. You can rearrange them to alter what order
they're tried in. You can probably also just use the "hibernate-disk"
and "hibernate-ram" commands.
Thanks for your replies.
Bhaskar: I cannot switch to the terminal with Alt+F1 or any other virtual terminal for that.
Kevin: I used the raw (low-level) program s2disk and s2ram for it but
they do the same thing as the powersave script, which additionally
removes some kernel modules.
Joe: I installed hibernate, but with the same result. May be you can suggest me the configs you made for making it work for you.
