I think you have leapt to a conclusion unsupported by facts :-)  You have
proved, to my satisfaction, that S3 doesn't work.  However, I don't believe
you've proved that you are IN S3 when your system hangs at other times.

That's normal. I've never come across a system that did S2.

This still looks strange - I've never heard of a system that will go into S3 but
not S1.
This is why I suggest that the acpi support list is more appropriate - anyone
who responds there will actually understand ACPI :-)

Not much chance of that.  It IS a very low volume list, but the people (besides
me) who might respond there are mostly ACPI developers who understand it very

I've got more thoughts, but I'll respond in-thread...
