Linux will never totally work on laptops as well as Windows until the laptop is sold with Linux pre-installed by a major vendor, such as ... Dell. Otherwise, there will always be little issues here and there. A vendor could add custom tweaks and modules to make everything work. Suspend and resume are flaky because of the way drivers are written. IIRC, they are supposed to handle this, but it practice they often don't.
