Ubuntu hibernation on Intel NUC D54250WYK

Even though the NUC D54250 series is discontinued, you might have an old one that wasn’t BIOS upgraded to fix hibernation.

I had experienced with NUC D54250 BIOS version 0030 from Sept. 2014 that hibernate in Ubuntu 14.04 didn’t work for me. Upon resume with a Displayport monitor, I just got a scrambled screen.
