Hibernate 18.04

Hi

Or maybe more accurately "Resume" after Hibernate

I've Googled (& DuckDuckGo'ed) for an answer that works, all tests of "if
hibernate should work" are positive

I could Hibernate & resume under 16.04 and the dual booted Win7, but didn't as
that screws access from Ubuntu to Win partition (as win cant read Ubuntu...)

Since I upgraded to 18.04 it stopped working, Hibernate does close down but
after re-boot it's just like a clean cold boot

Samsung NP N110 netbook (if that helps)

You still have a dedicated swap partition that is as big or slightly
bigger than physical RAM, yes?

If you use a swapfile or ZRAM, hibernation will never wake.

Also, as ever, check your firmware is current.

The latest version seems to be from OCT 30,2009 | ver 07D0

Yes
swapon-s & free both show enough (more) swap space than Ram

Yes

Hmm. :-( That's a sod, then. I am out of ideas. Hope for a kernel
upgrade, or switch to 18.10 when it becomes available. That's all I've
got.

I don't use hibernate much and I'm holding off 18.04 as I don't want
GNOME. Now you have me wondering if my laptop will still wake when I'm
compelled to upgrade...

I may try 18.10 but I sort of like having the LTS

I with you there I much prefer Unity to Gnome, but it seems short of keeping
16.04 for another couple of years (or even 14.04 till next spring), there is
not much choice in the long run

Not tested this on my whole stable of Lappies & Desktops yet

Foot note, I think it is mocking me, I was away from mains power and working on
the problem, and low and begold I had a dialogue come up

"Power Critical, System Will Hibernate"

or simalar wording

I agree.

I have been watching some of the 3rd party Unity remixes but nothing
seems to have critical mass.

Good luck. I hope it's a one-off problem.

Augh! :-(

FWIW, I had the problem of being unable to hibernate Windows 10 and
then boot Ubuntu.

Win10 has a "fast boot" mode which shuts down _most_ of the userland
and then hibernates. When you reload, it loads the saved running image
and then you log-in afresh.

I disabled this, by some registry tweaking or something, *and* then
disabled Windows's hibernation feature, and now I can shut down
Windows and know that Ubuntu will boot properly next time.

Doesn't help but MS is certainly making it harder for us as time goes by.

"MS <3 Linux" my $RUDE_BODY_PART. It's the same old embrace-and-extend
BS they've always done.

IIRC, there is some "trick" in that your choose a full shutdown from, I think,
right click on Start menu, it makes the Win10 boot take longer, but means you
can still access the Win partition from Ubuntu, without that there was also a
problem with the backup app in ubuntu or maybe it was cloning that failed (I
don't have a 10 here to check)

I was repeatedly getting failed Ubuntu boots (gee, thanks, systemd!)
because although I chose "shut down" in Win10, it did this
partial-hibernation thing.

As this article explains, certain updates reset it to "on by default".
Thanks, MICROS~1!

So step 1, disable that.

Step 2, disable hibernation totally, and get a few gig of disk space
back into the bargain.

I doubt it'll help with Ubuntu tho'.

Yes it was one of the Googled & DuckDuckGo'ed results, tried to follow but I
had to skipped the secure boot bit, as it didnĀ“t "seem" to refer to my system,
or is secure boot (now) a prerequisite for hibernation and succsessful resume ?
