The original message didn't came through and I don't see it in the

However, if the OP want's to hibernate, it might be useful to have a
swap, as large as the RAM is, even while for hibernation the data might
be compressed.

Assumed it's a modern computer with much memory, than a swap seldom is
used, if any, so a rule of thumb like "double the space of the RAM" is
obsolet, OTOH modern computers have much HDD space and it isn't
expensive anymore.

IOW there's no rule, but it's possible to estimate how much swap space
is useful.

I suspect that "1024 Kb" seemingly it's meant as "1024 KiB" or "1024
MiB"? I guess a small stand alone device wouldn't run Xfce? I guess just
1 MiB for swap is too small.

More information is needed.
