Default Re: Is hibernate fixed with new (9629) nVIDIA drivers?

I friend of mine got hibernation to work with the 8776 drivers on a Sony VIAO laptop using Dapper Drake. Interestingly, he did NOT have hibernate installed. It looks as if the nvidia driver was unloaded last. Since he wasn't modifying the hibernate script (because he didn't have one). I have to assume that the driver is hibernate capable. I'll find out which nVidia card he has and post it.

I guess APM was controlling the suspend-to-DISK.
