Back in the good ol' 5.2 days, I could routinely use the
command 'apm -s' to hibernate my laptop.  A click of the
Shift key would wake it back to its normal happy self.
After upgrading to 6.0, however, I can do this only once.
The second time I try it, it seems to perform the sync
(there is the normal pre-hibernation disk activity), but
then hangs (causing the fan to start, usually).  This
happens even from the console with very minimal processes
running.

Try the current version. Works well for me (Gericom 3XC).
