Hi, I'm using Debian stable (4.0r1) on a Thinkpad.  One of my concerns
when I was etch (a weekly image from Dec-06) earlier this year was I
could get neither suspend nor hibernate to work.  Both worked
out-of-the box when I reinstalled Debian last weekend after a six
month hiatus.  The off period had nothing to do with Debian, but a
Lenovo Rescue & Recovery upgrade made GRUB inoperable, so I just
re-installed XP last April.  Sebastian
