What driver and hardware?  Does the BSSID of your AP show up if you do
"iwlist wlan0 scan", even if it's SSID is blank?

To debug further, add "-dddt" to the end of the Exec= line
in /usr/share/dbus-1/system-services/fi.epitest.hostap.WPASupplicant.service then 'killall -TERM wpa_supplicant' (as root), then try to connect to your hidden network.

Then grab /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log and let me take a look at it,
along with your /var/log/NetworkManager.log
