Hi Tobias,

The laptop is a NEC Versa Ultralite (2000 model). It is extremely rare, and 
was sold in a very small quantity outside of Japan, therefore the tuxmobil is 
no help. 

I installed the 2.6.9 kernel. I did not apply additional patches. Suspend is 
still the same, except that now I dont have to remove the USB driver. It wont 
complain, goes to suspend (or sleep) and never come back. What I noticed, 
when it goes to suspend, the backlight stays on. The led flashes, and that is 
the way it supposed to be. Nothing happenes by pressing any keys on the 
keyboard, but when I press the power button, the backlight goes off, and the 
activity CPU led lights up and stays. From then on, I can no longer do 
anything, but reboot the machine with holding the power button in for a 

Now I am compiling a new 2.6.9 kernel with swsusp patches. I hope that helps.

By the way, when I try to suspend to disk with 2.6.9, it comes back with 
kernel-panic. 2.6.8 came back with "not enough swap area" error.

Thanks for the help
