I have tried hibernate multiple times on my Linux Mint 14. It does not seem to work. I have added some log which I think may be useful. Can someone help me diagnose the problem?

I have similar issues with Xubuntu and the wpa_supplicant service, basically, if I suspend/hibernate once, it works, if I try it a second time (without rebooting) it hangs, I get that message, then it returns to login.

Turns out there is a bug with that portion of Network Manager, luckily there is a workaround/fix:

Running hook /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/55NetworkManager resume suspend_hybrid: Having NetworkManager wake interfaces back up...Failed.

Looking at the script is uses org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.sleep and org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.wake.

Calling this results in errors like this: % sudo dbus-send --print-reply --system --dest=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.sleep Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method "sleep" with signature "" on interface "org.freedesktop.NetworkManager" doesn't exist

According to the documentation [1], the interface is different / has changed.

The correct usage would be to call org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.Sleep with a boolean value, like:

sudo dbus-send --print-reply --system --dest=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.Sleep boolean:true

So modify the file: gksudo gedit /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/55NetworkManager

Find the part that says:


and change to

org.freedesktop.Networkmanager.Sleep boolean:true

Then find the part that says

org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.wake and change to

org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.Sleep boolean:false

Not sure if that will work for you.. but its worth a shot!
