This is a difference though.  What does the text *say*?

Probably something or other is trying to configure itself, and timing out 
after waiting some interval for a piece of hardware to respond.  There are a 
lot of possibilities here, and you could narrow it down by noting what the 
text is just before it hangs.

You might get past the hang faster by typing Ctrl+C right there too.  That 
often works.

Linux finally has a hibernate function?!  I'll have to investigate this!
