    I'm noticing my swap file is not activating when I reboot or turn on the laptop. I have to activate it by swapon or do it in gparted. This should activate when booting. Any suggestions how to cure this?


    Regards
    Jim

    Never mind...Figured it out.
    Checked /etc/fstab and noticed the UUID and sda number were incorrect. Rather odd but I must have done something subconsciously and didn't realize it. Changed the file to the correct numbers, rebooted, bada-bing, bada-boom, back to normal.
