I won't say all my experiences with suspend are rosy, but it works more
often than not. Just this morning I suspended my laptop twice. I put it
on my docking station while it was on and everything worked. Well,
except the scroll wheel of my external mouse. So that's why I suspended
the second time. When I resumed on the dock, it Just Worked(tm). I can
even use hibernate sometimes, the problem there being that like a fool I
made my swap partition too small. "I've got a gig of RAM, what do I need
swap for?"
