Linux ACPI doesn't support suspend yet.
There is some "software suspend" patch for linux, that suspends in a
clever fashion (suspends by swapping all apps into the swap space, then
powering down; upon boot the kernel restores the processes from the swap
space - that is suspend is not handled by the (slow) BIOS)
I havn't tried that patch yet.

With APM on my old notebook i could suspend, ACPI overrode this.
I had created the swap partition with windows by then; don't know if
lphdisk works...

On my new machine i never tried suspend - it has 512 MB RAM, writing
that to disk in BIOS mode will take longer than system shutdown...
