Hi,
	If i hibernate with an device opened , before i resume , an image was
written on swap partition , will there be a problem with my secret key's
disclosure ?

	Just an off-line attack , if swap is not encrypted.

	And is there any suggestion for this special operation ? Because my
root partition is also encrypted , so i can't simply close that device
before hibernation took place.

	Thanks.
