I have a T61, and I did have high expectations for it, but hibernation
(suspend to disk) stubbornly fails to work. I've tried dozens of
different kernels, kernel suspend, userspace suspend, tuxonice -
nothing works reliably: it's like playing Russian roulette - system
usually (but not always) goes down nicely, but often (perhaps 50% of
the time) panics on resume (blank screen with blinking cursor, blinking
Caps lock LED).

I love this machine from a hardware / build quality perspective, but
completely borked suspend is incredibly frustrating on a laptop.

[Intel graphics, BTW.]

Sorry for this minor thread hijack, but this is just so incredibly
