To avoid people having to skip to the conclusion, I'm sticking with Mandriva Linux Spring on my laptop permanently!"

Great to hear it just works there.

I don't exactly know the reasons why Linux distributions are so badly uncapable of just doing the trivial-looking job of suspanding/waking up OK, I'm just one of the many that suffer because of the sad fact.

I hope this may be the time passing this issue.

From everything I've heard the issue revolves around the lack of anyone following the ACPI standards, or throwing in their own 'special' stuff in with the mix.

I believe windows gets around this because all the manufactures supply drivers to get it to work right. Just did a reinstall on a dell laptop, and before I got the dell specific drivers in there, surprise...the sleep and hibernate functions didn't work. (after I did they of course did work)
