Hibernate/Suspend issues on opensuse10.2 with swap on LVM


I've been trying to get suspend/hibernate to work on my laptop (Toshiba Satellite 2435) running openSuSE 10.2. Here is what I can do so far:

Suspend to RAM once: I can suspend to RAM by calling
Code:
s2ram -f -a 3
just once in full user mode (in /bin/bash I can do it as many times as I want). On the second try it will fail right before shutting down the system unless I do a full reboot. /var/log/pm-suspend.log thinks that everything is fine and gives no errors that I know of, but here it is anyway:

Code:
===== Fri Mar 23 15:56:07 EDT 2007: running hook: /etc/pm/hooks/00clear =====
===== Fri Mar 23 15:56:08 EDT 2007: running hook: /etc/pm/hooks/01logging =====
suspend initiated: Fri Mar 23 15:56:08 EDT 2007

My machine isn't in the whitelist, so I'm not completely surprised that it isn't working properly. What is a tougher nut to crack for me is hibernate (suspend to disk).

I'm running my swap in LVM, and GRUB seems to be unable to find my swap (or at least the resume image) when I try to restore from s2disk. I'm no linux guru and the docs I find on en.opensuse.org don't talk about using suspend with LVM, leaving me kinda lost and suspend-less.

I've even tried recompiling my kernel with suspend2 to get hibernate, however I run into the same problem of my resume device (swap) being on LVM. I have no real aversion to taking my swap off my LVM, but I'm hoping there is a more elegant solution out there. As for suspend to RAM, I haven't found anything that mentions it working once and then crashing.

Any ideas, suggestions, more debug messages needed? Am I wasting my time with this?

I've heard about modifying my initrd, but I don't know how.

Did some googling, and I found this:

http://swik.net/Debian/Debian+Admin+...M+and+Fix/zplh

Not sure if it applies to me, since it is Debian. Even if it did, I don't understand how it works, and I'm not going to mess with stuff unless I know what I'm doing.

So yeah, I need guidance on hibernate--or some reason for that quirk with suspend.
