When I press hibernate, the machine seems to respond and power down. However, when I resume, it turns on normally, as in it was booted, not hibernated. Nothing was saved and Mint started a new session. It did not even remember it went on hibernation. I made sure the amount of active RAM was less than the amount of the Swap Partition, but nothing was saved, apparently.
I have 2 gig ram and 2 gig swap.
I am using Linux Mint 14 Cinammon.
