Re: this is really emberassing, need help fast pls
Are you having a suspend hibernate issue? I was having them with my laptop with 10.04, and finally found a fix. It's worth a shot. I just followed to instructions by John Dias a few down in the post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1444822
Follow his instructions exactly, then test hibernate and suspend. If that works for you, I'd go back into power management and set it so the netbook suspends upon lid being closed.
LEt me know if that works for you.
