When I click on “Hibernate” in the KDE launcher, the system seems to write the image to the swap disk. It then seems to shut the computer down briefly, but then, within a few seconds, returns to the same state as it was in before I tried to put it in hibernation. I have 9GB of swap space, and so that should not be the problem. If anyone has a solution, I would appreciate hearing it.
How much memory???
writing 9 GiB to disk takes a lot of time!
there might be a bug somewhere or you pressed a key or moved the mouse, touched the touch-pad, if you use kdeconnect your phone might have pinged kde etc…
that’s why I stopped using hibernate a few years ago, I use suspend to RAM ie sleep or power off,
suspend to ram is simultaneous as nothing is written to disk but uses a bit of power.
and I don’t have a lot of ram only 4 gigs for my use it’s enough
Does invoking the following work to complete hibernation?
echo disk > /sys/power/state
Some good suspend/hibernate debugging references:
Thank you for your suggestions. Unfortunately, none of them solved the problem.
It might be that a bug report is required then.
- maybe some clues in journal entries - obviously there will be a dead spot but you should get a build up, and for waking from suspend mine shows the event i.e. lid open. (ps you have a bug to be investigated but in general suspend is more reliable on linux)
- arch pages always good: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Power_management/Suspend_and_hibernate
