Can you show the ACPI options in your .config file and the ACPI stuff
from dmesg? (I don't know all the details, but I do know it works on my
relatively new laptop and on a rather old one. So, it's like 'spot the
10 differences'.)

Sorry, my bad. I didn't reply off-list intentionally. It's back to the
list now. I didn't remove any quotes to let others catch up.

S3 is ACPI slang for suspend-to-ram. In the config file of the hibernate
script, there is an option to tell swsusp2 how to 'shut down'. It can be
3 (suspend-to-ram), 4 (suspend-to-disk) or 5 (off). Look for
'PowerdownMethod' in hibernate.conf. You can also try the
UseSysfsPowerState option. Like I said, the last time I tried, I
couldn't get suspend-to-ram to work. For more details on swsusp2, try
their mailinglist (softwaresuspend-help@lists.berlios.de).
