    If you can't hibernate your session like I couldn't after I installed WattOS on my netbook, as root open /etc/default/grub and change value of GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX to "resume=/dev/sdXY" ('X' is probably 'a' and 'Y' is a number. For example "resume=/dev/sda5", if sda5 is your swap partition. Find out your swap partition name by typing in "cat /proc/swaps" in the terminal).  Don't forget to save the file :). Then open terminal, execute "sudo update-grub" and input your password. Reboot your PC after the updating is complete.
