I tried all sorts of methods; ACPI events (power button, lid close,  
etc) and various scripts or just inserting ACPI events directly into / 
proc.  The best I ever managed was to hibernate (by using the power  
button), but due to ATi's buggy driver, the resume from hibernate  
always resulted in hopelessly corrupt video state requiring a reboot  
to fix.  The open-source ATi driver was fine, but didn't have 3D  
acceleration which I needed.

Yep - seen that one too.  So I hacked the resume scripts to always  
return a "zero" (successful) exit status.  Still no joy - see above.

FWIW, I've heard ATi have fixed their X-series Linux drivers to  
properly handle suspend/resume without corruption.  So I might need  
to break out the work-supplied lappy again and see if I get any  
further with the new driver. I love a challenge! :)
