Yes, it does come up often when I google for things.  I've never used
it directly to solve a Gentoo problem but it's been helpful to me
already.  Thanks for providing a useful comparison.

I don't mind laborious so much, especially if what things I might need
to tweak are documented.  Fedora's suspend is meant to "just work" and
for a growing number of systems that's probably true.  Mine doesn't
and I've yet to find a good reference on how to proceed when it
doesn't (not counting tons of "try this kernel param and that one"
guessing).  At least now I know that the hardware works just fine with
linux I will try harder to find a solution that works in Fedora.

A friend with Gentoo was trying to add some of the minor suspend
scripts he had from his Dell on mine in Fedora but they didn't work
out.  But from that I have a start on how I'll try to get it working
when I get around to trying Gentoo on here.
