Hey guys,

I have a laptop I'm slowly bringing about to Vector.  Big question, which there was some confusion in chat about, how big of a swap do I need?  As it's a laptop it will be going to sleep / hibernation a lot.  I have 4GB of RAM installed, should I go with a 4GB swap?

Currently only a 2Gb swap partition would be recognized so making a 4Gb one would be a waste although you can make multiple swap partitions but I'm not sure if suspend/hibernate would utilize it. You might be better suited with a suspend file that is the size of your RAM.
