On my laptop susupend/hibernate work out of the box. But on my 
desktop/server they don't work out of the box. Not working out of the 
box is, for many people, the same as not working at all. It would be 
nice if it always worked out of the box. If not it would be nice if 
there were more how-to articles about setting up hibernate/suspend. 
Hibernate/suspend don't ALWAYS work and it isn't the users fault that 
they don't know enough to get it working.
Power management is the top 'idea' on the ubuntu brainstorm site. There 
are still problems with power functions on Ubuntu, but people are 
working on it.

btw swapon -s shows:
Filename Type Size Used Priority
/dev/sda3 partition 40000176 0 -1

I have swap (I have a lot of it) and hibernate suspend don't work. Any 


To be or not to be, that is the question
                2b || !2b
(0b10)*(0b1100010) || !(0b10)*(0b1100010)
        0b11000100 || !0b11000100
        0b11000100 || 0b00111011
        255, that is the answer.
