Well, in that case, you should look into suspend2. suspend2 is for
hibernating, and the project can be found at (
). There are a number of Ubuntu-specific HOWTOs available, e.g., at (

In my experience, I still had a few issues when using suspend2, in
that not everything worked (e.g., fglrx, network-manager), though in
suspend2's defense, I didn't try a whole lot to get them working (most
likely, the problem was in the fact that I probably forgot to compile
in a kernel option or two). However, if it does work, it is incredibly
nice, as you don't have to sit and wait for nearly as long to get your
computer back up.

I hope that helped,
