black screen after hibernate


using linux mint 14.7, and i can't wake it after it after it hibernates. when i hit the power button it says

resuming from ....

then when that goes away i have my indicator light on but nothing on the screen.

I've tried suggestions from a google search and no key press will bring it back up.

suspected video driver issue, I'm pretty sure its an intel hd 4400

Code:
lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0a16] (rev 0b)
	Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Device [1025:0a11]
	Kernel driver in use: i915
00:03.0 Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT HD Audio Controller [8086:0a0c] (rev 0b)
Code:
sudo lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3 | grep "in use"

Kernel driver in use: i915
should i try switching to mesa drivers or something else?

Check if you already have mesa going on.

Your intel graphics chip is different and newer than mine with that Haswell and i915.

Edit: How big is your /swap partition and how much ram do you have.
I ask because a large /swap partition needs to be tied into hibernate.

looks like i do have mesa

on a side note, thats a really nifty way to use grep to narrow it like that. I'm still learning piping.
