Since I upgraded Fiesty to Gutsy a few weeks ago, my Dell Inspiron 1501 
will not hibernate either.  I haven't heard of a fix, yet.

AFAIK, the kernel and drivers have to support cpu scaling for it to 
work.  I have a desktop running NVidia and it will lock up when the cpu 
speed changes.  I disabled it in the bios until a fix comes about.
