• Hibernation doesn't function properly


    I have done the following:

    • Creating swap file on /swapfile with 19GB size
    • Updated my kernel, added these 2 parameters:
    • Applied changes using grub-mkconfig
    • Rebooted

    Now I see the option of hibernation, but when I click on it, it just behaivs like ‘Switch User’. Takes me to login screen and the screen remains on.

    And you need an entry inside /etc/fstab too:
    /swapfile none swap defaults 0 0

    And insert the hook inside /etc/mkinitcpio.conf

    HOOKS=(base udev autodetect keyboard modconf block filesystems resume fsck)

    then rebuild it sudo mkinitcpio -p linux


  • Thanks @joekamprad ,

    /etc/fstab was already edited.

    I jused edited /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and added the hooks, rebuilt (without errors), rebooted, but didn’t work.

    I noticed this line in my /etc/mkinitcpio.conf :

    HOOKS="base udev autodetect modconf block keyboard keymap filesystems fsck"

    It was already there. Do I need to remove it? Or maybe just add resume to it?
