I think when it comes to suspend etc., peoples experiences vary a lot, and 
this is far from a universal view. It seems very hardware dependant

For me, after installing (clean install to /, with /home and /boot on 
separation partitions that where retained) FC5 suspend and hibernate both 
worked out-the-box. I have a dell 8600 with an nvidia 5650 graphics card, and 
using the OSS nv driver it just worked straight away. Getting the nvidia 
closed binary driver going took a little tweaking, but still was relatively 
painless.

What hardware do you have ? maybe the some one with the same can comment.
