Public bug reported:

Suspend to disk failed on my Dell Inspiron 1501 with 512mb memory. The
error was:

[  244.536000] swsusp: critical section: 
[  244.536000] swsusp: Need to copy 58721 pages
[  244.536000] swsusp: Normal pages needed: 58721 + 1024 + 14, available pages: 55565
[  244.536000] swsusp: Not enough free memory

However the following fix from
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=19995 helped me:

echo 2048248 > /sys/power/image_size

It seems that the standard image_size is not big enough.
