Still cannot get the suspend to disk to work, but at least I can
unplug it from the mains cable now :)
I've never seen any suspend from the Kernel working in any way...
no chance at all. I've got an ibm thinkpad here and as i move around
a lot, i've decided i need a solution. I found one: swsusp2. This works
like a breeze for me and i've seen it working on other systems as well.
Might be worth a try for you as well. http://swsusp.sourceforge.net
be the url for it.
The libretto doesn't require any OS support for suspend-to-disk; the
hardware can do it on its own. It suspends to the last 130MB or so of
where the *BIOS* thinks the hard disk end; this is crucial because the
BIOS has the old limitation where it thinks that all disks are <=8.1
On my 100CT, I have the following partitions:
Disk /dev/hda: 12.0 GB, 12072517632 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1467 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 1 279 2241036 b W95 FAT32
/dev/hda2 * 280 304 200812+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 305 320 128520 82 Linux swap /

/dev/hda5 321 1017 5598621 83 Linux
/dev/hda6 1029 1467 3526267+ 83 Linux
You can see the hole for the machine to suspend to between hda5 and
I spent a lot of time calculating where that hole needed to be, and the
first time I did it I got it wrong and trashed the filesystem. :-)
