Suspend to RAM works perfectly on my laptop (Debian Sid on Ibook). I think that is what matters for most users.. or at least if people had a choice between suspend to disk vs suspend to ram most would choose suspend to ram.
I mean it's pretty nice. I just close the lid, stick it in the bag and walk around with it. I open it up nm-applet notices that it lost the connection and then finds a new one. All of it is pretty hands off for me and it's all very quick.
Although suspend to disk should be easier for devices with not-so-hot acpi support, correct?
On my desktop suspend to ram ALMOST works, which would be very kick-ass. I can get it to suspend to ram and even save the video state... When it starts back up X and everything is running fine... except that the SATA controller proceeds to start to puke immediately. I figure that when libata stuff gets power management support this would help out a lot, maybe?
