This manual page documents briefly the s2disk, s2both and resume
This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the
original program does not have a manual page.
s2disk is a program that will save the state of the whole system to
disk and power off your system. After restarting your system it will
be put back in the exact system state you left it (this is sometimes
s2both will do precisly the same as s2disk except that it will not
power off the system, but will suspend it to ram (put the system in S3
mode). This has the advantage that resume will be faster, with the
disadvantage that you still use batteries. If they batteries do
deplete, you still have the system state saved to disk and can resume
without data loss. The s2both command also inherits all command line
arguments from s2ram.
You will need to set up an initramfs which calls the resume program for
this to work. If you use an Debian kernel package which was made with
the --initrd option and you use mkinitramfs-tools, this package should
include the necessary parts on your initramfs.
The uswsusp system supports encrypting the image written to disk and
features a splash system, see uswsusp.conf(8) for more information
-f, --config [file]
