OK. Let's try this:
Hibernation may be unavailable with automatic partitioning

The default partitioning recipe in the installer will in some cases
allocate a swap partition that is smaller than the physical memory in
the system. This will prevent the use of hibernation (suspend-to-disk)
because the system image will not fit in the swap partition. If you
intend to use hibernation with your system, you should ensure that the
swap partition's size is at least as large as the system's physical RAM.

[Installer creates too small swap partition (hibernation fails)]

Given that your hibernation is inconsistant, the swap may be the
problem. Have a look at the swap size to check. This may also be of help:
