Thanks for the post, to be honest, after I ran the first "sudo
pm-is-supported --hibernate" and got no response, I didn't check it with
the "echo" command . . . .  This is a desktop, but possibly knowing the
distinction, it would be "hibernate" that might be closer to OSX's "sleep"
mode?  Seems like in "suspend" the computer either gets "hot" or stays as
hot as when it is running, so it doesn't seem to be using less power than
when it is running . . . it's like "holding its breath" and there is some
"tension" in the system--i.e., the computer isn't exactly "at rest" in
suspend . . . .

Possibly with hibernate there might be more systemic "rest"?  I think one
of the "kind" posters on the Ubuntu Apple User forum rather gruffly
suggested that 12.04 would "hibernate" even though it wouldn't "suspend" .
. . which it did do in PPC . . . seems like that "talent" has been lost in

Perhaps I'll try out the "echo" phrase for "hibernate" specifically when I
get back to that partition, but, then, what is needed to "revive" out of
"hibernate"???  Again, in OSX all I have to do to revive from sleep is
click the mouse or hit a key and we are "awake."  : - )
