I sure need that as well. Come on nvidia! I have a 3.5 years old Dell laptop and suspend to disk never worked!

User-space software suspend

I would like to update my statement.

After upgrading to Ubuntu dapper drake test flight 6 and following this: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NvidiaLaptopBinaryDriverSuspend

I am finally able to suspend to RAM (and probably disk as well).

I've tested this with the latest nvidia kernel and madwifi (all installed by ubuntu) while on a wireless connection with Skype software on.

Suspended. Waited for 30 seconds. Reopenend the machine, tried to call laptop using Skype from another PC, and It Just Worked.

Finally. Too bad the machine (Inspiron 8100) is getting really tired (4 years old, one dead battery, one dead USB, one dead PCMCIA, dead CD/DVD drive). That's without counting the 2 replaced hard disks and 2 replaced motherboards, + the dead keyboard.

Nevertheless it now finally works. I'll open a beer to celebrate.
