Bug Description

At the time of creating this bug report via "ubuntu-bug indicator-session," selecting "Hibernate" from the session menu was only locking the screen instead of actually hibernating the machine.

Hibernation normally works for this machine, and does in fact work again after a reboot. At the time that it wasn't working, several hibernation attempts were all simply causing the screen to lock.

Interestingly (perhaps), on each occasion that I entered my password to be returned to my desktop after the failed hibernation attempt, a notification of being reconnected to my wireless network would display. This suggests that the hibernation was partially working in that particular services (such as networking) were being suspended.

Do you mean the problem is solved now?

The symptoms of this bug did disappear for me after a reboot, but I don't really consider a reboot to be the solution.
