Software suspend - again

It's sad it is taking so long to get a useable suspend implementation in the linux kernel. One of the reasons my next laptop is a mac is the nice way it handles suspend on closing the lid. (The other reason is the graphical interface, but that is moot soon in any case, with the introduction of Xgl..)

Works for me and for a lot of others

And (besides the uncomfortable fact that ATM we can't interrupt the
suspension process) it works really well. My work machine only goes to
hibernate at night, never shuts down. (in our building, fire regulations
mandate that every electrical appliance is turned off at nights -- except
of course inside the datacenter, that is especially protected)
