Ok, but as I say in a separate message how exactly does one wake the
machine up. I used the script that was posted here which dos the supend
things you indicate but i can't wake the machine up. How is that done?

Why does fedora not come with a suspend and wake up function that does
the right thigs? Noy just because this is built in to Windows but it
because it makes sense. For example how does one find out that:
echo mem > /sys/power/state
will cause the processor to suspend. Is there a similar wake up
sequence.
