I am using acpi so that won't solve my problem, but thanx.
There is a project thats called swsusp that does software suspend. The
acpi code of 2.6 originated from that and works to jain them back
together is on its way (mostly usefull for laptops with no bios suspend).
Mine claims it has such support in the bios menus, but I haven't managed
to get it running properly and I found no documentation on building a
proper partition. Maybe I will try it some time with apm again and see
how it goes.
