I am having issues hibernating my machine (I'm running ubuntu 11.10). I initially thought it was lack of swap space that was the issue but after following the instructions outlined in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1042946 to make and enable a swap file, I still have not been able to hibernate successfully. It freezes while preforming the following precess: "saving 208370 image data pages"

it refuses to make progress after 11%.

One possibility I can thin of is that I might have used the incorrect UUID as described in the link above. There was some ambiguity on which device to identify with the swap file I created. This is what I get when I run

sudo blkid

/dev/loop0: UUID="6e865e3b-9d88-4d4f-8987-2e3022056107" TYPE="ext4" 
/dev/sda1: UUID="1E54793154790D31" TYPE="ntfs" 
/dev/sda2: UUID="A47A-0E57" TYPE="vfat" 
/dev/sda3: UUID="12107D0B107CF757" TYPE="ntfs" 
/dev/sdb1: LABEL="PENDRIVE" UUID="5455-9FB7" TYPE="vfat" 
/dev/zram0: UUID="704af4d4-77cd-4620-8204-69f525e761e9" TYPE="swap" 
/dev/zram1: UUID="d3c4955f-0b76-4587-8473-880317f25bc0" TYPE="swap" 

I appreciate any help,

Do you have an encrypted home partition? I think encrypting your home partition breaks the ability to hibernate. –  Marius Mar 28 '12 at 1:55
you need a "real swap" not one created by zRam –  Ringtail Mar 28 '12 at 2:31
