I don’t use a laptop, but a desktop machine, nevertheless I want to use ACPI power saving, precisely hibernation. I use openSUSE 11.1, acpid is running. I have the following GRUB confiuration:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-184.108.40.206-9-pae-athlon root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST3160023A_5JS0V55G-part1 resume=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST3160023A_5JS0V55G-part5
Does the resume option mean, the swap partition is used for hibernation? The names partition above is normally my swap partition…
In KDE 4.1 I have a button “hibernate”, but I don’t dare to press it, how do I wake up the machine if it works?
Hibernation is ACPI state S4, right? cat /sys/power/state says: standby disk
So Hibernation is supported?
Thanx for any enlightenment!
