Fedora 14 Hibernate problem

I am on a fresh install of Fedora 14. Just installed it yesterday along
with all updates. 

When I try to hibernate the machine, nothing happens. The screen just
blanks and locks itself (as in a screen lock). And the network
connection (wireless) gets disconnected. That's all, nothing else

Suspending the machine (to RAM) works. So it looks like something is
preventing the machine from hibernating. 

I do have swap enabled. I have about 1.2GB of RAM, and I have a 2.41GB
swap partition (which is active as per the output of ''swapon -s''). I
am using the encrypted LVM setup. Not sure it matters, but after
installing Fedora I also manually installed LMDE from another laptop
into the encrypted LVM (backed up and restored to this laptop). 

I Googled a bit and saw similar reports from other users. But didn't see
a solution anywhere. Some forums asked for the output of ''upower -d''
so here it is -

Are there any logs etc that I can view to figure out what is going
wrong? Or are there any other utilities I can use to hibernate, so as to
identify where the problem could be? 

I tried hibernating via ''pm-hibernate'' too but nothing happened.
