When I run xfce4-session-logout --hibernate it seems to work. However, it fails to recover the session and starts up as a normal reboot (yet slower).

Hibernation works both with the commands

 "systemctl hibernate" and "s2disk" (I manually installed uswsusp).

I see two possible ways forward:

1) Fix the xfce hibernation

2) Make xfce use either of the other two hibernation commands

However, I failed at both.

  • 1) Do you have a swap partition? 2) Did you have a swap partition at the time you installed Debian? – Nick ODell Jul 4 '18 at 0:08
  • I do have a swap partition - in particular s2disk uses it properly. I don't recall/know how long the swap partition has been there - I suppose it could have been created by uswsusp when I installed it, but somehow I doubt that and assume it was there from the beginning. – Thomas Kragh Jul 4 '18 at 6:31
  • Install pm-utils package and use pm-hibernate command , see man pm-action – GAD3R Jul 4 '18 at 21:59
