FC4 lacks the infrastructure work (pm-utils, mkinitrd etc) for
hibernate/suspend to work.  It's still not perfect in FC5, but
at least now we have something to build on.

The FC4 kernel also completely lacks suspend to disk support,
due to the missing userspace bits.

Thanks for the work to get suspend/hibernate in FC5 working somewhat, depending upon hardware mixes.

I guess there are changes, decent improvements in FC5 rather than a few updated applications.

Network problems with hibernate other items seem to be alright. Suspend, not working for me, blank screen when woken up and no keyboard responsiveness.
