On my TP560 I had one thing bugging me for a long time -- if IRQ 9 was
made available to the pcmcia-cs package, then at some point machine
refused to hibernate. Not really predictable, e.g. it would happily
hibernate 20 times and then suddenly refuse. Usually just when I was in
*real* hurry :-)

So, you might take a look at that.

And BTW, for the ThinkPad 560 owners: anybody got suspend to work (not
hibernation, not standby, SUSPEND == fn-f4) ? My machine w/Linux happily
suspends and then never wakes up. I can open&close the screen, tap the
keys, etc, no go. Nada. Have to disconnect AC and remove the batteries.
