Suspend-to-RAM should basically work. Suspend-to-disk requires setting
up a separate dedicated swap partition. Also look at the package
hibernate and making the kernel software-suspend (of whatever version) work.

SuSE includes support for software suspend, IIRC.

Anyway, I figure that this is a matter for debian-devel .
