I have been seeing this once in a while over the past two weeks. (And I do not
have a NVidia card or driver.) However, in my case, it just reboots.
Initially, I thought that maybe I had run out of battery (even though this did
not make sense), but the day before (when it last happened), I noticed that the
battery was at 100% when it booted in. So, I had the same thought, and have
been thinking of moving to the vanilla kernel (where hibernate works out of the
box) since Fedora has decided that they and not the user should decide that we
should not have support for hibernation (a decision which I am very
disappointed with -- per reasoning below).
This decision has the potential to essentially kill hibernation in the
long-term because fewer people will use it if something requires additional
work to get it going (as happens with Fedora and I think Ubuntu). As a result,
less people will be catching bugs and even fewer will be reporting them (of
course, reporting within Fedora may not even be allowed anymore since it is
disabled by default).
Hibernation besides, being environmentally friendly, also is often, when you
are taking a long trip in the middle of nowhere, the only way to get your
battery to last while working.
Anyway, sorry for expressing my disappointment.
