Hibernate was never working for me out of the box after installation, so I resized the swap space, because I thought it might be too small (which actually broke even more).
Here are the steps I used to finally enable Hibernation:
- launch gnome config
sudo gconf-editorand navigate to "apps -> gnome-power-manager -> general" and make a mark at "can_hibernate"
- in the terminal enter
blkidand copy the UUID of the swap partition
- edit the filesystem table using "sudo gedit /etc/fstab" and add previously copied UUID of the swap space to the line to mount the swap partition:
UUID=xxxx none swap sw 0 0(where xxxx is the copied UUID)
- edit the initramfs settings for resuming using "sudo gedit /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume" and add the previously copied UUID:
(where xxxx is the copied UUID)
- enable the new initramfs settings by typing
sudo update-initramfs -u
This might also work for other netbooks and also other linux distributions.
Can't wait to try out the new eeebuntu 3, which should be available tomorrow.
