Needed, for some reason, to get OBEX in BT, but changed values to match MBA, and hence some values are dont-care anyway, as yes I also have that MBA smbios.plist). This is my main annoyance right now, would love to get rid of the kext and still have OBEX.

But somehow, I'd be surprised if any of the above is making the difference. (This I guess I wont investigate, as it'd be a long process to "start over" to check impact of each on hibernate!).
Am thinking you were right and this is due to BIOS/std DSDT differences between the machines. But ...

Just a wild guess but could any of this have to do with what the install source was (ie what type of OSX disc you used)?
The different BIOS (maybe even hardware) also seems possible because from what I can see there is a wide range of performance on both the 10v and mini 9 in that somme people can watch streaming hulu fine even on HD and others can't at all, temps also run a pretty wide range between different users reporting.

"Just a wild guess but could any of this have to do with what the install source was (ie what type of OSX disc you used)?"
I would not have though this would be relevant, if we are talking about retail DVD source, but who knows what's in the other stuff people get hold of...?
However, the installation method absolutely can make a difference, firstly what version of Chameleon or one of the spins is used, since not all had the hibernation fix applied (or applied correctly) eg: I read somewhere that standard Chameleon RC4 did not implement the hibernation patch correctly, whereas RC3 did. And of course, there are various "spins" of Chameleon out there. Most these days seem to have the patch.
The conversation above was focussed on why OSX did not write out the hibernate image file correctly, so nothing for Chameleon to "resume" from. Again, that could be due to many things; a basic pre-requirement is properly functioning sleep, so various DSDT edits generally needed. I guess that's where different hardware/vendor matters, whether you have a "nice" DSDT to start with.
Given the release of Meklort's new NBI 0.8.4 RC1 (that uses Native PowerManagement) it's probably worth trying again, as less things to go wrong!
I definitely don't really understand very much of this (probably was lucky getting it working on my not-Dell-netbook), but I can't see why the different machine types would make a difference if configured "correctly", as it ought to just depend on what Chameleon & Darwin/OSX does when going into sleep and rebooting.

I'm going to try. I'm using a 10.6.3 retail install, mini 9. (See my signature)
Dell Mini 9 <I don't own this anymore> | BIOS: A06 | SL 10.6.3 retail DVD | 1GB RAM | NBI 0.8.4RC1 | BT: √ (Tetany's BT Terminal Mod) |
Audio: √ (Akki's Mini 9 Sound and Mic Fix bundle) | Legacy USB: Off | Sleep: √ | Method: My compiled method | Easier method ]

On a 'real' Mac is it even possible to force 'disk sleep' (like Windows hibernate). The docs seem to say it will only use this when the battery gets low.
