Debian Jessie freezes after hibernate

I have a Debian 8 Jessie RC1 installed on an Asus n56jr laptop. When I close the screen or press the power button, the laptop seems to hibernate. Upon resuming (either opening the screen or pressing a button), Debian comes back up. I type in my password, then everything freezes within 1 minute or so. I think it's a kernel panic, as I can't switch to another TTY or turn on/off caps lock at this point.

These errors seem to be in the kern.log:

Mar 11 22:41:02 vera kernel: [ 1.367003] PM: Hibernation image partition 8:5 present
Mar 11 22:41:02 vera kernel: [ 1.367004] PM: Looking for hibernation image.
Mar 11 22:41:02 vera kernel: [ 1.367149] PM: Image not found (code -22)
Mar 11 22:41:02 vera kernel: [ 1.367151] PM: Hibernation image not present or could not be loaded.

I'm not sure exactly what logs to attach, but here is my /var/log/kern.log

Using gnome-tweak-tool, it says that the power button suspends, not hibernates, however if I check this log right after pressing the power button then resuming, the kern.log shows the same hibernation error.

I honestly don't like hibernate, and would rather it suspend anyhow. If anyone can point me towards a fix, or how to set it to suspend, rather than hibernate on lid close, I would be happy.

Let me know if you need any other information and thanks for the help.

I have an update. I tried using pm-utils (sudo pm-suspend) to force a suspend, rather than a hibernate. Even with this, I get the exact same errors in kern.log about hibernation and the image not being found. I am not sure what to try next.


debian, freeze, hibernate, jessie
