hello all. 

this is a question about hibernation (save state to disk). I have opensuse 11 and windows 7 in a fujitsu siemens laptop which uses pm-utils for hibernating. Grub is used for the OS choose menu.

I would like to hibernate my linux session, reboot the system and start windows. Then reboot again and load the "hibernated" linux session so I can contnue with my work without configuring, openeing and starting documents, servers, etc. 

Hibernating in linux works fine, with the exception that after hibernate, when I turn on the system, I can't choose which OS to boot in grub menu because grub menu is not presented, and the hibernated linux session is loaded automatically. 

I was looking at the scripts, I ended in /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/99Zgrub scripts but I really don't understand where this behaviour can be changed. Is the script /usr/sbin/grubonce something to do with this?

Thanks in advance, any tip is appreciated since be able of doing so will save me a lot of time...
