Leaving the other issues to one side... :-)

The below are a couple of files I find useful for handling the ACPI lid
event on my ThinkPad.  I'm not sure what vintage a "760XL" is (it
doesn't sound like a recent model, but maybe US models are different to
the ones I see).  Anyway, if it does do ACPI then this should be roughly
what you need.

With various kernels I have found that it was also useful to stop /
start hotplug, alsa adn wireless LAN within the suspend_to_ram.sh
script, but that doesn't seem to be the case since around 2.6.8 or so.
