I would like hybrid suspend to act a certain way.
If I add the code
# Always use suspend_hybrid instead of suspend if [ "$METHOD" = "suspend" ]; then METHOD=suspend_hybrid fi PM_HIBERNATE_DELAY=XX
where XX is the number of seconds until the computer hibernates, does XX indicate the number of seconds until the computer writes the state of the RAM to the disk, or until the computer actually goes into hibernation mode, or both?
I would like to use a hybrid suspend in which when I close the lid of my laptop, the state of the RAM is both written to the disk and kept in the RAM at the time that I close the lid of the laptop, and then after the XX seconds the computer actually goes into hibernate (drops the contents of the RAM from the RAM). If this is not what the above code does, can someone give me the code that will do this? Thanks!
Code taken from this question: How do I use pm-suspend-hybrid by default instead of pm-suspend?
UPDATE: I tested this for myself by simply taking out the battery of my laptop about thirty seconds after using hybrid suspend by closing the lid. When I started back up, the system booted as it would normally. This also occurred when I omitted the
line and when I ran
from the terminal. Therefore, It can be concluded that the system does NOT write the state of the RAM to the disk as soon as it suspends.
Am I correct in this assumption?
If I am, I would like to know how to make hybrid suspend write the state of the RAM to the disk when the computer suspends, not after the timer expires.
I know that this question is out of vanity more than anything, but it has been posted for a month with not even a comment. Is there someplace anybody knows of that I can go where I might be able to come up with a solution for myself?
