Re: Anyone using SUSPEND on a Linux Laptop?

There seem to be so many caveats, (a) stop devices before suspending, unload drivers
    (b) USB wont be there when you come back
    (c) and on and on.

That I have to wonder how useful either of these actually is.

If I were trying to put this on MY machine I would just do the experiments,
but this is for a friends machine that I am setting up, and I would rather NOT
install this stuff at all than give him something that would cause more grief than

I use suspend extensively (both to ram and to hard disk). I've only noticed problems with network connections (both LAN and WLAN because DHCP doesn't re-run on waking up) and sound (though that deals with a bug in Flash). All other things seem to keep working. My USB mouse continues to work during suspends. I don't have any specific problems with drivers, but I don't have any high tech graphics card which appear to cause more problem (just a generic Intel integrated video card).

Mostly the functionality will all depend upon the hardware within the computer.

Hope this helps a bit.
