Question Computer will not restore from hibernate, just does a normal boot. But suspend to ram is working.

I have Debian 6 (squeeze), I have also seen this under Ubuntu (can not remember how I fixed it).

I can hibernate, but when I switch on the system cold boots (it does not restore previous session).

Note suspend works fine.
Have looked in /var/log/pm-suspend.log Shows for each suspend suspend block a resume suspend block, but hibernate hibernate' is not followed by resume hibernate` ( I assume that this is not correct. )

Update on what I have discovered:

I have discovered that the uswsusp package is missing from debian squeeze. I could get it from testing or unstable repository, but have to be careful about not pulling in other dependencies. I would like to know if it will fix it. Is uswsusp needed for hibernate. Or should pm-utils be enough. (suspend it ram is working fine.)

Fixed by magic

This issue has now fixed it self, there is nothing in synaptics history to say that I installed something to fix it. It may have been an update, are these in the same history log? BUT Redetection of my 'option' modem is now slower.


boot, grub, hibernate, sysadmin
