I am using
xfce4-power-manager to take care of screen locking and suspend when I close the lid of my laptop. It's a great little utility!
However, when the machine wakes from suspend (which is to RAM), it is very sluggish. e.g. typing in a terminal window will incur as much as a few seconds delay.
This effectively makes suspend to RAM useless on my machine :-(
I have the same problem if I manually use
pm-hibernate (the latter also requiring to go through grub when it wakes up).
Is there something I'm missing?
