Hibernating Thinkpad

I've upgraded my IBM ThinkPad X31 from Hardy to Intrepid and not only
do I now get (rather slow) wobbly windows and luxuries like that, but
also, suspend and resume now works. Suspend always worked, but the
machine would never resume again afterwards.

So far, so good!

However, Hibernation still doesn't work. The machine works for a
little, the screen goes blank, the sleep light flashes - then it
instantly comes awake again with the password dialogue.

It has never worked before, but with the improvement in
suspend/resume, I was getting hopeful.

The machine has 1GB RAM (which under Ubuntu seems enough, it seldom
swaps) and a 2GB swap partition. Both suspend/resume and
hibernate/resume work fine in the IBM install of XP SP3 and TinyVista.

Any thoughts?
