I am not sure if this is enough, or that you have enough RAM in your box. 
Hibernation works by making sure that less than 50% of your RAM is used 
(perhaps by pushing some pages into swap, but this doesn't always work), 
then atomically copying one half of the RAM into the other, and writing the 
copy to swap.

There may be more information in the output of "dmesg | tail".
