How much you have of swap space ?
If you are using a swap space smaller than your main memory, processes
are allocated
to swap in an "incomplete" state. So to resume, these processes may behave

> Hello list,
> I've put CentOS 6.3 x86_64 on my desktop, replacing Fedora 17 x86_64.
> This is the first time I'm using CentOS on a desktop, so far only on the

> The problem is with thawing from hibernation. Time from turning on the
> hibernated machine to reaching the login prompt is not that of an issue,
> although sometimes it can take a while (significantly more than with
> Fedora). The problem is after I log in. It appears that none of the

> taskbar, when the disk crunching begin and the program is unresponsive
> for up to a minute or two until it loads up from disk I guess,
> regardless of how much I wait between login and clicking a tab int taskbar.
> The biggest problem is with Firefox. I keep several tabs open and it
> takes literally minutes for it to become responsive. Even the terminal
> takes several seconds. During that time the window does not render
> except it's title bar and outer border.
> This is on the very same hardware (btw, it's AMD Phenom II X2, 4GB of
> RAM) where Fedora was running just a few weeks ago.
