There was a problem with the directory settings when compiling toshutils in
potato which kept the buttons from working. This has been fixed in the
version in unstable (you can download the source and recompile if necessary.
It should work OK). 

But you should be able to get straight to the config dialog box from the X
menu: Debian->Apps->System->Toshiba->TuxTime Config.

Also, I suspect you need apm compiled into the kernel and turned on for
suspend-to-disk to work.  When it's set up completely, you should be able to
just press the power button, and the computer will go into suspend (if
that's how you set up the BIOS settings)
