Hibernation to disk

Post#1 by Slaxmax » 03 Dec 2013, 17:01

I've read about some hibernate modes, but do not know how to begin implement and / or activate it.
How?

hi Slaxmax,

please do as follows:
a) convert one of your partitions to swap (it's size must be bigger than your RAM):

Code: Select all

mkswap /dev/sdXY
b) add 'resume=/dev/sdXY' cheatcode where sdXY is your swap partition
c) click on kmenu -> leave -> hibernate
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
