suspend to disk issue

Hi There,

From time to time when I Leave -> 'suspend to disk' my computer freezes up on the green screen (SUSE linux 10.3) and the progress bar does not move.

The only thing to do is to switch it off manually.

Why does this happen and is there a way around this ?

Try this approach

sync; echo -n disk > /sys/power/state

The sync clears the disk cache. You do have a 'resume=/dev/somewhere' in the line you boot up, do you?
Check logs in /var/log for strangeness.
