Isn't this laptop-dependent?  And how is this normally done using
Windows?  I am still struggling with my new ASUS laptop (they have
a wrong DSDT file that does not work for the battery status), but
in the manual I don't see anything mentioned on how to suspend it
with a button, and resume can be done via the power button.

With FC2 using acpi_sleep=s3_bios as kernel parameter, suspend
(with "echo 3 > ...") and resume (power button) seems to work.

I don't see this problem in my configuration.
