Enable hibernate, enlarge swap

I want my 16.04 to be able to hibernate to disk, it does not give that option now. I have a HP Pavillion x360 with 4 GB RAM. What should I do? Do you think it will help to shrink the Windows partition (sda3) by one GB and make swap size all together 5 GB? Or should I do something else? (Maybe 3.91 GiB is enough already?)

If I expand swap, will I then have to make any adjustments in the system. Or will Ubuntu automatically realize the swap has been enlarged?

Since I will be shrinking Windows 10 I thought I might use Windows 10 partitioning tools, also for enlarging swap. I don't have a bootable GParted USB at hand. Does that make a difference? (The system is dual boot.)

(I am in a period when I use Linux quite much for a project and I would appreciate hibernate to be present and also that I can activate it smoothly, therefore I ask this before trying.)
