hi everyone!
I have this strange problem and I can not figure it out! I can not hibernate my opensuse 11 system with pm-hibernate command as I used to do in 10.2 release of opensuse.

when I type pm-hibernate as root, the system aparantly initiates the hibernation process by switching from kde 4 to console and opensuse green colored banner, and then it comes back on to the desktop with out hibernating the system.

I have looked into the log, but can not find the reason of the failure!

Here is the pm-utils log! (from /var/log/pm-suspend.log)
