Re: iBook G4 Software Suspend

I use pmud (because I don't need the extra functionality that pbuttonsd
provides), so what is this fake sleep patch?  I see one in the
directory, but it's for a PowerBook G4 12".  Do I just modify that for
the line that is for my iBook?  Also, I see a cpu-freq patch; what is
that for?  Thanks in advance!
