#648: Hibernation doesn't really work
 Reporter:  Boug         |       Type:  System Defect
   Status:  new          |   Priority:  critical
Milestone:               |  Component:  System Configuration
  Version:  9.0-RELEASE  |   Keywords:  hibernation resume
 I use PC-BSD 9.0 x86 on a Desktop PC equipped with an ASUS P5KPL-AM
 motherboard (Intel G31 chipset) and an NVIDIA GeForce? 9800 GT video card
 (G92 GPU). My video card uses the NVIDIA proprietary driver, version

 The "Hibernate" functionality is proposed into the main menus of GNOME 2
 and KDE 4, so apparently this might work (in Linux, when it appears, it
 normally works). So I've decided to give it a try.

 The system effectively seems to hibernate (I didn't notice the usual quite
 long RAM-to-HDD recording that occurs under Linux, because I had only 73
 MB occupied in RAM on a total of 3.5GB available (limitation of non-PAE
 x86), but unlike Linux, the system is shot down somewhat roughly, as I
 have to presss the PC On/Off button instead of simply press the
 combination Ctrl+Esc as I usually do with my ASUS motherboard to start-up
 my PC.

 The real problem occurs when the system restarts : it doesn't resume from
 the swap partition, but starts an all new session instead! I didn't see
 any error message about my swap or anything else during the hibernation
 process. All seemed to work until I switched on my PC again. So, for now
 it's a "false hibernation".

 Sorry for all these Linux-related comparisons, but at those times I made
 bug reports on Linux distros, I used Windows as a comparison reference ^^
