Well, they "sleep" in OSX . . . : - )  But, seemingly running this latest
command did not bring back "Yeah" . . . it just returned to blinking prompt.

Emptiness is our friend . . . but . . . no "suspend."  No worries, nothing
new here . . . I was hoping for an "easy" way . . . supposedly on the
PPCFAQ is some stuff to try, like changing video to "fbdev" . . . but,
then, there would have to be an xorg.conf file, and I just haven't had the
attention span for messing with it--other more pressing things to do.

But, jes sayin' . . . seems like pretty basic function to be able to
"suspend" and wake and then use the computer, rather than leaving it
running or shutting down between sessions, which might be an hour or two

Thanks for the hints to try out though, 'precerate it.
