Until recently I only ran Dell computers and I was never able to get any of them to suspend or hibernate properly. It was not a problem since Mint booted in less than a minute on any machine I put it on.
I recently bought a Hewlitt-Packard Pavilion DV9500T (T7700 core 2 duo, 2.4 GHz, 2 Gib ram, @x 120 Gib, 7200 rpm HDD, Nvidia GeForce 8400mM GS w/ 512 Mib ram, Intel PRO/Wireless 4965 AGN card; dual boot Mint 6 main and Mint 6 XFCE). This computer suspends and hibernates perfectly in either OS but the need to enter my password on recovery slows things down so much that I might as well shutdown and reboot.
Is there a way to eliminate the password requirement?
I'm not worried about the security aspects. I'm the only user on the system and it is not in a public place so random passers-by are not a problem.
I would like to use suspend and hibernate as I occasionally need to leave a session without finishing everything I'm doing but the need to enter my password gets a little irksome after a while. As I've said in other posts, I like a fast booting, fast running OS.
