Personally I don't find pm-hibernate as good as the acpid version (it's the
same actual hibernate code, but different things are happening pre- &
post-).  95% or more of the time, it works perfectly, but that 1 in 20
results in some incorrect reinitialization of the graphics adapter, and X
won't resume properly, resulting in an eventual reboot.
