Power Mager sleep problem

Postby llsmith533 on Tue Apr 06, 2010 9:46 pm

In Power Management I set "Put computer to sleep for:" to 10 minutes.
When 10 minutes passes I get this error.

Power Manager: Sleep problem
Your computer failed to suspend.
Check the help file for common problems.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Am using Mint 8, Helena
System is an older HP PC

One common problem is having an insufficiently sized swap partition. Your swap partition should always be as large as or larger than your amount of ram.

Run each of these commands in terminal and then paste the results here.

You may have just identified your problem, the swap partition is only 25% of the size of your ram.
swap-1 size: 0.34GB

Mem[-248.5/1223.7MB-]

I would suggest that you increase the size of your swap partition to at least 1.5Gb (1500Mb), you can not do this working from your hard drive, you will need to boot from a live CD.

Make sure any data you do not want to put at risk is backed up, then, once running from the liveCD, go to --
Menu > Administration > Partition Editor.

remoulder gives a brief guide on resizing partitions.
