For the spontaneous-resume-from-suspend issue, there turns out to be a
workaround:

        http://www.ces.clemson.edu/linux/f8-nvidia-suspend.shtml

For the power issues, make sure you have BIOS 1.22-1.06 or later.
Battery life is still not great, but it is supposed to be better than
earlier BIOSes

Still can't resume from hibernate with the nVidia binary driver.  nv
driver still has issues (see another thread about that).  vesa driver
mostly works, except that the backlight never goes off.
