My Debian 7 system used to hibernate and resume just fine; then I added an SSD as follows: 1) added SSD (on SATA 1), 2) updated /etc/uswsusp.conf (use UUID for swap partition), 3) copied /usr and /opt to SSD partitions, 4) modified /etc/fstab to mount /usr & /opt partitions, 5) ran update-grub2.

And resume fails after hibernate. It used to work. If I unplug the SSD, it still works (after removing new partitions from fstab).

hibernate.log doesn't indicate a problem. The failure causes journal recovery on all partitions except /.

Here's my /etc/fstab:

I moved the SSD from SATA 1 to SATA 5, reran update-initranfs -u and things work. I don't quite understand why this should work since all disks are referenced by UUID but resume now works.
