I want to enable Hybrid suspend on my system. Can someone point me to the right info? Plus, I read something about it not working, but is that really true? Or just a system by system issue? Thanks for any information.

s2both (provided by uswsusp) is one way to do it. pm-suspend-hybrid is another. I'm not aware of any outstanding issues for either program that isn't model- or configuration- specific.

That being said, I have this issue with pm-suspend-hybrid. The accepted answer there doesn't work for me. s2both resumes correctly, but shuts down my laptop instead of putting it to sleep correctly per this confirmed bug. I think my issues with these methods are related to my hardware.
