Ubuntu – Suspend fails (reboot on resume) and no hibernate option


Upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 removed hibernate option for me and introduced the problem where by after entering standby (being indicated by blinking amber LED on my laptop) I cannot resume my session. Instead I get a crash and system reboots (crash comes instantly on trying to resume).

Tried clean install to eliminate possibility of an upgrade issue but its still persistent. All latest updates installed.

Tried looking for an answer to this but still no joy. Laptop is Sony VGN-FW41E.
