Show Grub boot menu when resuming from hibernate (suspend to disk)

Feature state

openSUSE-11.3
Rejected Information

Description

When I resume my computer after hibernate (suspend to disk) with OpenSuse, Grub boot menu is not displayed, so I am forced to boot into OpenSuse in the case of a dual boot system.

Other GNU/Linux distributions like Debian/Ubuntu display the Grub boot menu when you power on the computer after hibernate with GNU/Linux, and booting into MS Windows (or other) is offered.

The next time you boot again into GNU/Linux it resumes the last hibernated session. I think OpenSuse should follow this line too.

This sounds quite dangerous when you have the windows partition mounted rw in the hibernated linux session.

I have got two GRUB menus since I installed openSUSE 12.1 on a new disk for my computer. The first menu let me choose suspended kernels while the other does not. (A "hibernated" Linux system is automatically started from my GRUB 0.97-177.1.2 environment - the "green" variant.)

I am also curious about answers around a question like "
How grub knows there is a system in suspend/hibernate state? ".

In openSUSE 12.2 removing the file /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/99Zgrub works for me.

/usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/99Zgrub gets called when you suspend to disk. It starts /usr/sbin/grubonce, telling grub which os to start next time.

I would like to see an easier way to set this up, too. It's a valid use case for a dual boot system where you want so pause your work on linux to use a program on windows. And a big warning to not cross mount any partitions would be enough in my opinion.
