Re: hibernation with new kernels

Now I see what you meant by turning off the tea kettle.  It was an interesting joke and I am sorry that I did not realize what you meant initially.  I thought at first that the tea kettle might be a script or that kind of thing which does something during hibernation or resume so I wanted to know how to turn if off! :)

Anyway, I am really not concerned with the noise if it does not signal something's going wrong inside my laptop.  I mean, if it cannot damage the hardware then that's alright.  I cannot figure out how to give you more information because I don't know how to tell where is the noise coming from precisely.  I will try to make the process as much verbose as is possible then I might be able to see what happens that makes the noise.

It was just a joke. I mean that you can't expect other readers to guess
where that noise came from... why not the kettle near your computer ;-)

Noisy network adapter are common nowadays, especially when transfering
data large amount of data over the network. I have never investigated
that fact.

You probably wondered what I meant... I also wondered what could
possibly be your problem.

Regarding the the hibernation speed, If I remember correctly there were
a few kernel around 2.6.22 which were slower *on my laptop*, then around
2.6.26 if got faster again. YMMV
