Edit: New paragraph below; also "Sleep" corrected to "Suspend"
Having apparently twice successfully used Hibernate (in spite of the reports that it had failed) I decided this evening to use Suspend (from the Quit screen) while I ate my dinner. It said it would wake at the touch of a key. No luck - many keys, including Ctrl+Alt+Del.
So I had to Reset - it performed a normal boot; Firefox offered to resume its session, and all is well.
Originally I had many failures to boot, until I accidentally discovered that it boots happily if I wait for Grub to time itself out on the default system offered - previously I have normally pressed Enter, and with systems up to Daryna this gave no problems - well, Daryna would sometimes go into Busybox.
Are there bugs responsible for these behaviours?
I repeated the above after installing the package for the Hibernate command with its manual. The manual refers frequently to Suspend, so it appeared to be likely that it would also apply to this facility - no luck.
