    Phoronix: Fedora Wants To Know If Linux Hibernation Works For You

    Linux hibernation and suspend/resume works much better in recent years than a decade ago, certainly, but that isn't without some bugs still persisting either due to quirky hardware or the occasional kernel/software issues as well. Fedora developers are interested in hearing about your current system hibernation experience...

    On my workstation with openSUSE both suspension and hibernation work well.

      What hardware? Generally useful to know when talking hibernation/s2d.

        I disable hibernation even in Windows...

          Always worked on 2008 desktop with various distros but this has to be set in kernel command line and stuff. Because what is the point of hibernating when the system is not set to resume from it and boots as usual instead (this is the situation most people face)? The problem is, also, that there are no options to hibernate and if there are, these aren't as default as shutdown. I personally would like hibernation to be default and usual shutdown to be triggered after kernel updates. I've heard that Windows 10 is smart about hibernation and does it like I wish it was on Linux. Then there could be optimisations made to hibernation process, like closing programs so only desktop and vital services are stored so it resembles usual reboot but is much faster? I just love how this desktop boots in ~5 seconds after BIOS with hibernation vs. a minute for a simplest tty login without hibernation. So I guess there could be a differentiation between "hard hibernation" and "soft hibernation" or how you want to name different aproaches. I would love "soft hibernation" to be the default and for the user to not even notice it is there! (Just like windows 10)

            On my Asus GL52 based laptop, suspension works reasonably fine in F28. It's been a while since I last attempted hybernation, but will do so and report back. With recent versions of Fedora and the Kernel on this Laptop, since 4.14, approx, suspension has been much more reliable. The only issue I still have with this machine is its quirky Atheros wifi-BT combo controller and its realtek 1gbps NIC controllers. I will report back with exact model numbers PCI-IDs/USB-IDs, as I dot have the machine handy at the moment. Modified from default shipping is that I upgraded the drive to a WD BLUE 1TiB SSD drive instead of the supplied 1 TiB spinning drive.

              On my Dell Chromebook 7310, I've installed Coreboot and F28. The suspend/resume works perfectly, as does audio, wifi, webcam, and all other hardware features of the machine. If you can live with the non-upgradable 4GB memory, it makes a very snappy portable Fedora machine. I have not tested hibernate.

              My desktop is based on a Supermicro X9SRL-F motherboard. I have not yet tested hibernate, but it has been on my todo list for a while, as I run the machine 24/7 and I like the idea of power savings via hibernate for nights and weekends. I will try and get it configured this weekend, and report back...

                On stock Debian Buster (testing) with ASUS P5B Deluxe mainboard, Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 2.4Ghz, 4GB RAM, nVidia GeForce GTX 660, Soundblaster Audigy (EMU20k1) with 7x SSD's with BTRFS filesystem (swap on separate partitions of course) my hibernation attempts are rather "interesting". Most of the time the system refuses to hibernate for some odd reason I have not yet figured out , and other times - if it does hibernate, then restoring the system mostly works , but not always. Especially not if I have more things up than a browser. Typically stuff such as blender, audacity, codeblocks, gimp etc...
                I use a Lenovo L540 laptop at work, that one works flawlessly for suspend, but for hibernate it sometimes vary a bit.

                The short and sweet version is that hibernation is unreliable generally speaking, but suspend works (for me). This is of course very biased based on just two types of computers - but I simply avoid using it (and honestly , my system would look like a mess if I did use it all the time as I don't like to quit programs )

                  I have not had a hibernation issue in YEARS.
                  This is on a skylake dell notebook, or an ivybridge dell notebook, or a core2 duo dell one, or even the atom acer one happy.

                    Fedora 28 on Acer Aspire V3-772G from 2013:
                    Code:
                    $ sudo systemctl hibernate
                    Failed to hibernate system via logind: Sleep verb not supported
                    Does not work when using secure boot apparently.
