Question Hibernate not working - 06-16-2009, 02:19 PM

Hey everyone,

I'm running Ubuntu (jaunty) netbook remix on my dell mini 9. Works fine except for it will not hibernate. Instead I get a blank screen and the computer stays on. I have read elsewhere that it won't hibernate without a swap partition, but I do have a swap partition 1gb in size. So, I'm stumped.

Has this happened to anyone else? Any solutions?

Why not? The interfaces are the same, operating systems typically can't tell the difference.
