Linux laptop Suspend / Hibernation development

Thanks Stefan for your reply. 

To answer my own question, here is what I discovered about suspend / 
hibernation evolvement in Linux laptop world. 

- the traditional tools are uswsusp + hibernate (s2ram/s2disk & hibernate-

- pm-utils is the new suspend and powerstate setting framework. It is 
designed to replace such scripts as those provided by the powersave 
package. [1]

- The latest development is, however, DeviceKit. Both Ubuntu & Fedora are 
moving towards DeviceKit. [2], [3]

2. http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/karmic/alpha6

So far, Debian seems to be lagging behind such evolvement -- I don't see 
devicekit in Debian repo yet.
