You need to have a partition created with the recovery CD, it don't
work if you create it with normal fdisk (and it will destroy your data
in the disk, do a backup first).

I have the omnibook lastest BIOS as end of July, it will work only
with Fn+F12. I don't remind the version, can check when rebooting.

I am also waiting for it, as I can not suspend to RAM, but suspend to
