> how can someone think a laptop is working ok when not performing a basic and fundamental function like suspend resume?
The default laptop install does have software suspend to disk through the SoftwareSuspend project (not part of the main kernel tree yet). LinuxCertified sells the laptop with a patched kernel that enables this. But it doesn't have a real "sleep" function through ACPI.
The real trouble only starts if you really need "sleep" or you need the default kernel of your distribution, or if you want to install another distro.
