When resuming from hibernate state, my computer waits at the GRUB screen for 30 seconds, which is different from the custom timeout that I have set by editing the grub configuration file.

The custom timeout works properly for normal boot from complete shutdown but waits as stated above while resuming from hibernate state.

How can I set same timeout for resuming from hibernate?

Put N=timeout that you want when resuming from hibernate
