Umm... I rarely boot my machines (once in a couple of months), but I'd
venture to guess that if suspend-resume was bullet-proof, people would
have rebooted their machine only in the cases above, which are pretty
rare events for most Linux users.
Plus, I might be wrong here, but doesn't suspend to disk theoretically
allows you to suspend, switch to Windows (*spit!), and pick up where you
left once you switch back to Linux?
