If you tried Suspend2 and had problems with reliability, please send me
logs. I'll do all I can to help. (I have to qualify it a bit, because
I'm not able to fix drivers, but if it's a Suspend2 issue, tell me and
I'll fix it).

Does suspend2 work with APM ? After much trying, I think now the ACPI
implementation of my laptop (a vintage Compaq Armada 1700) is busted,
only APM works.

AFAIR the problem with suspend2 was that it didn't poweroff some parts
of the laptop (the led of the wifi pcmcia card was on, and the lcd light
was on too), but that was last year. Kernel's suspend kind of worked but
didn't resume (no reaction on button press). As I tried all this last
year, I may have forgotten some things.
Honestly, I like this laptop when it works flawlessly, so I don't see
many reasons to try *susp* again. I'll do it when I'm bored, just not

Actually on some old laptops I just use the apm command, with -s (or -S, I forget by now), and that works.
