I just bought a laptop (dell inspiron 5000) and put potato on it. I've
been struggling with getting hibernation to work. I created the
hibernation partition with the little dos utility that came with the
machine, but still no dice. The bios are set to "suspend-to-disk" so I
had sort of hoped that just doing Fn-Suspend would save the ram to disk
and shut off. This is not the case, the machine just does a lowpower
suspend. Windows has a hibernate option, which does what you would
suspect, saves the ram and shuts off.
I just wanted to know if anyone has had any luck with this sort of
thing, or has any suggestions. Thanks.
