Hibernation isn’t happening, either on Debian minimal or Debian standard. Above shows the disk use for a standard install and the memory use for fresh log in running Iceweasel and logged into this blog. Not too bad, and not swapping. The Gnome desktop is quite usable.

Ubuntu always ‘just works’ on hibernate to disk, as does the Windows XP operating system. I’ll try an Ubuntu minimal and see what happens.
