I'm using a Thinkpad 570E and this is probably the first Linux install
I've ever done where suspend and hibernate work without ANY tweaking of
kernel or apmd scripts.

Admittedly, I have no need for ACPI (apm and the bios suspend/hibernate
work perfectly), but FC1's working beautifully on my Thinkpad.
