You may find that patching your kernel with suspend2

of machines (as reported by people that are actually using it).

With Rawhide kernel (2.6.15-1.1854_FC5), suspend2 2.2-rc16 will require 
quite a bit of surgery to get it going, but the kernel from FC5T2 
should be a breeze to patch.

For your reference:

Instructions (or close :-) on how to build patched kernel RPMS:

PS. If the above patches kill your box and eat your data, it's not 
going to be my fault. They also change the SPEC file to build i686 UP 
kernel only (which is what my notebook is).
