An observation about hibernation on Linux - have a window open

Tags: linux March 2, 2009    

I have just noticed that when no windows are open at the point that I hibernate my system, the system will hang when trying to resume. However, when at least one window is open at the point that I hibernate, the system (with Ubuntu Linux 8.10 on an ASRock motherboard) will not hang.

The moral of the story. Always have an xterm window open when hibernating.
