Now I discovered that swap partitions are necessary for hibernate as well.. didn't think of that one... so now I have created a 5 GB swap file which appears to work just fine, system monitor reports "0 bytes of 4,9 GiB"
So now I should be able to at least hibernate, right? Then why can't I? If I hibernate it'll blank screen, it won't turn completely off or back on again and I have to do a hard reset. I haven't tried suspend but I strongly assume that it acts likewise.
I have 4 GB of RAM and my swap file is, as said, 5 GB. Oh, and If I could suspend that'd be godly...
Is there any way of enabling these things? I would kill to have a fully working linux laptop...
