I discovered the "could not stat the resume device file" error behind a splash screen. My main OS wouldn't boot when the second hard drive (in an optical drive bay adapter) was removed either to use the DVD burner or to use my laptop without the docking station. (Lenovo X60). After reading this thread which stretches from July '07 through 2010...now March 2012...I tried removing the uswsusp packages and rebooted with no problems. Since I don't use hibernate I'm probably OK, but I do have my laptop set to "suspend" when I close the cover. So far, so good. I haven't tried running the DVD burner in place of the second hard drive, but booted OK with laptop separated from docking station AND when I closed the cover it "suspended" and reawoke when I opened the cover. I think I'll leave well enough alone until some time when I can reinstall uswsusp and see if it properly configures itself so as not to cause problems.
Thanks to all for the many suggestions
