An important fact of Thinkpad life is that its hibernate space has to live on
a FAT filesystem.  If you wipe out all vestige of FAT, you lose the ability
to hibernate...  not sure it's supposed to harm suspend.

I had heard of someone working on having soft hibernate into swap space, to 
give non-APM systems the ability to suspend.  Anyone know anything about what
happened to that?
