It sounds like you're using hibernation with an encrypted swap device. 
Is that even possible? ;-)  Has it worked before?

Also, I am interested to hear if you have really had a good experience 
with hibernation on Linux.  On my laptop, sleeping works well, but 
resuming from hibernation takes far too long to be worthwhile.
