Not sure where this topic really belongs.
I have a HP Mini 210 netbook with LMDE installed. I can use hibernate and suspend from the Mint Menu and both work fine. However, when I press the power switch, which presents the options to hibernate, suspend, power off or cancel, if I choose either hibernate or suspend then it fails. The computer doesn't look like it does a full shutdown sequence but also don't pick up from where it left off on last boot.
Does anyone have any ideas? Where can I start looking to see what is different between choosing from the mint menu and pressing the power button?
EDIT: If anyone can tell me what happens when the power switch is pressed, such as what script/program is called, then it would be a huge help.
