Like a couple of the other posts that I've read, the hibernate command seems to have quit working after the last couple of rounds of updates. I noticed there was a quick fix for KDE, so I'm hoping there's something similar for Xfce? When I attempt to issue the hibernate command, it basically just does a log off. Sometimes I can Ctrl-Alt-F(n) to another window, log in again and do 'sudo shutdown -h now' or 'sudo reboot', but that doesn't always work consistently. There have been times I do the Ctrl-Alt-F(n) combination and I cannot log back in at all.
If someone wouldn't mind telling me which logs I should be looking for and quoting, I'll reply in another post. I'm running the latest 3.9 kernel, just updated this morning (24 June). The system is an HP Compaq nx6110 laptop (Intel Celeron M CPU and 915 chipset).
Thanks in advance!
