Re: ACPI suspend to RAM in FC3T3



urk... ill be out killi'n if my laptop suspended on me just by closing
the lid.... there is a reason most of them has a separate "suspend"
button (and a power button (shutdown) and a lid button (monitor)).

For instace my laptop chrashes when i try to get it back out of s3...
Just imagine. Sombody is writing on an important doc. Then sombody else
slams the laptop shut... Ugh...
