Do you know much about the quirk system? I used it to correct CentOS 5  
suspending on my old laptop.

The basic procedure is to discover what it takes for proper suspension by  
testing commandline options for 'pm-suspend'. You can search the Web for  
possible clues others have used for similar hardware. If nothing, then  
you'll have to test it yourself until you get it back from suspension  

Then, you can either keep it on the CLI with switches, or you can learn  
how to modify the .fdi files in  
/usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/ . If you don't know, I can  
generally figure those out. Unfortunately, the Official Quirks page has  
been missing from the Net for awhile.
