Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Pf-Kernel is an updated Linux Kernel that comes with a bunch of tools for tweaking your system, like: the pf-kernel scheduler, patches for improving the disk management, TuxOnIce to speed up the suspend and hibernate process and some improvements implemented on the original kernel patch.

    Does this modified kernel solve the hibernation problems of Ubuntu 14 and derivatives (Linux Mint 17, and others) ?
