I upgraded to 11.04 on the day for its release and I am unable to hibernate my laptop, When I click on Hibernate, the screen just goes blank and cursor starts blinking in the top left corner and nothing happens. . It used to work fine till 10.10. Suspend/Resume works fine though. I am using 11.04 64bit on Dell Inspiron N5010 it have ATI graphics card and I am using propriety drivers for it installed via jockey. Thanks

You need to be more specific than "it doesn't work". What happens when you try? –  psusi May 25 '11 at 23:01

Ok I have solved this problem. The solution is to use tuxonice patched kernel. Its very simple, just follow these steps.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tuxonice/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tuxonice-userui linux-generic-tuxonice linux-headers-generic-tuxonice

Restart your system. Thats it.

Ubuntu has a better method documented to enable hibernation. If this doesn't work, probably you don't have enough space in your swap drive to hibernate.

How do I hibernate my computer?
