    Question M1530: After successful hibernation, get "your computer failed to hibernate" message

    Both suspend to ram and suspend to disk work fine on my M1530, however whenever I resume from hibernation, I get a libnotify message: "Sleep Problem - Your computer failed to hibernate. Check the help file for common problems."

    I don't know what is triggering this, even though the hibernate functions normally. I get 4 loud beeps prior to resuming from hibernation, I don't know what this means or if it is related. Any help would be appreciated.

    I can confirm the same happens occasionally on my Inspiron 9400, probably about 50% of the time. Mine also seems to work fine afterwards, despite the error.

    Re: M1530: After successful hibernation, get "your computer failed to hibernate" mess

    This workaround quieted the shrill beeps that accompanied the "Your computer failed to suspend" message when waking from suspend for my laptop. This error would occur occasionally, despite always suspending just fine.

    Those shrill beeps had to go, 'cuz that's no way for me to wake-up before having coffee.

    Workaround:
    uncheck "Use sound to notify in event of error" in
    System->Preferences->Power Management->General

    I'm curious if this addresses the issue for your hibernation too.

    same problem here
    dell 1150

    sometimes the wireless needs to be restarted
    "sudo ifconfig eth1 up" fixes that problem

    I get the same "your computer failed to hibernate" message about half the time. In addition, now and then the window box to enter the password won't appear. The computer seems to have reloaded the hibernate file but hangs up in displaying the password window.

    Same happens here on a ThinkPad X60 running up-to-date Ubuntu 8.04.

    Same problem on a Sony Vaio VGN-A150 with 8.04.1

    I have noticed this message as it's about to power down:

    Code:
    [ 107.664863] i8042 kbd 00:03: activation failed
    The first number in brackets changes each time, but the rest is verbatim each time.
