Chanchao: I had a problem like this and discovered that I had just
misconfigured powersave - I had manually specified my hibernation
partition, so it was turning off the default swap partition, activating the
specified one (which happened to be the same), saving data to the hibernate
partition, hibernate/resume, loading data from the swap and then turning
off swap!
