TuxOnIce is a hibernate application, similar with the one from Windows Systems. It is better than the default hibernation option, because it can be customized, for example to restore the computer from hibernation when pressed a certain key.

TuxOnIce finds your swap partition by default and does not need any additional hibernation packages.

If your computer supports hibernation (sudo pm-hibernate works), you won’t have any problems with TuxOnIce. Most users use TuxOnIce with the default settings.

Install TuxOnIce on Ubuntu:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tuxonice/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install tuxonice-userui linux-generic-tuxonice linux-headers-generic-tuxonice
$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/tuxonice-userui/tuxoniceui /usr/local/sbin/tuxoniceui_text
