    Especially with todays SSD's. Suspend to disk should be alot faster on portable systems that use them making suspend to ram really not needed.

      That, like so many other sleep/suspend issues seems very dependent on the hardware as well. My desktops with blobs for example work fine with s2r. (Although I rarely use it anyways as the systems are usually crunching away at something). Where it could be of a lot of use though is again the portables.

        Suspend-to-RAM seems to be working reliably as long as you avoid any binary blobs.

        Besides, fast boot time are completely orthogonal to either suspend/hibernation. I, for one, would *love* to see my virtual machines load in 10 seconds flat.
        agreed, suspend-to-disk is noticably slower from my experience than to-ram (on an dell xps m1330),

        with Karmic Koala Alpha5 + Updates from Yesterday (so to speak Alpha6)

        binary blobs don't necessarily have to be a contradiction towards suspend-to-ram (as long as we're talking about nvidia blobs )

          Booting fast is great but if it crashes after you get there, what good is it. Karmic is the only 'developmental distro' that locks up on my laptop after the boot.

            Karmic is the only distro so far that suspends properly on my other laptop (Japanese Fujitsu L00X). I suspect it's mostly due to the awesomely improving OSS Radeon driver.

              what didn't you understand about the word development ?

              where exactly does it crash ?

              remove any "fastboot" from menu.lst and append
              Code:
              scsi_mod.scan=sync
              if it's not caused by a crash from upstart or gdm, etc. it should be "fixed" temporarily,

              after that wait some days and update your system and try again whether it boots fine without those settings

                Where does it crash? At the desktop level. I could be doing anything. I tried Firefox.... crash. Another attempt at boot and checking it out, I opened Synaptic and trying to resize.... crash! It locks up so I can't even try to run or list a log.

                  I have seen Ubuntu make some improvement in boot times over the past two releases. My systems now boot in under thirty seconds, but since I do not have hot hardware, it's not quite down to the sub twenty second level; twenty five seconds is the best time I have seen from GRUB to GDM login screen.
