Fix Ubuntu 10.10 Sony Vaio Sleep/Hibernate Issue

I have a new sony vaio F series and I have struggled to get the sleep and hibernate to work. I finally found a solution today at

Here is the solution copied from the above link.

create files : /etc/pm/config.d/00sleep_module and /etc/pm/config.d/unload_module
add line to files : SUSPEND_MODULES="xhci-hcd"

I hope this helps if you are having the issue too.
