No hibernate option - Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi,

Since the time I've moved to Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon, I'v never had the hibernate option.

I tried following instructions at http://www.linuxandlife.com/2012/06/...inux-mint.html but to no avail,even trying to change the Re-enable to enable but with no luck.

I can see there already is a com.ubuntu.enable-hibernate.pkls in /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/

For the record, when I do sudo pm-hibernate it just makes the system hang.

The attached is what dconf editor currently shows.

Would really appreciate some help on this, pls

This might be a stupid question, but do you have a swap partition which is sufficiently large to hibernate?
By default linux installations hibernate by writing the memory to the swap partition. If your swap is smaller than your memory, or you do not have a swap partition this might prevent you from hibernating.

I do have a swap partition, however both the RAM and the SWAP partition are 4GB

Looks like you posted this question multiple times. Not a good idea.

Have you found a solution yet?

Still struggling - am stuck at the idea of increasing my SWAP partition to 8GB, but fearing it may corrupt my OS's (I have a dual boot: Linux Mint 15 & Win 7) plus another data partition (this too is NTFS)

In my experience, I've found that usually something else is going on, other than an improperly sized swap partition. Every time I have seen too small of a partition used, the problem would be detected and the system will still halt, but never hangs.
