    You need to append resume=/dev/your_swap_partition to kernel command
    line. Then you suspend by echo 4 > /proc/acpi/sleep.

    +Pavel's unreliable guide to swsusp mess
    +They are currently two versions of swap suspend in the kernel, old
    +"Pavel's" version in kernel/power/swsusp.c and new "Patrick's" version
    +in kernel/power/pmdisk.c. They provide same functionality; old version
    +looks ugly but was tested, while new version looks nicer but did not
    +receive so much testing. echo 4 > /proc/acpi/sleep calls old version,
    +echo disk > /sys/power/state calls new one.
    +[In future, when new version is stable enough, two things can happen
    +* new version is moved into swsusp.c, and swsusp is renamed to swap
    + suspend (Pavel prefers this)
    +* pmdisk is kept as is and swsusp.c is removed from kernel]
    [Notice. Rest docs is pretty outdated (see date!) It should be safe to
    use swsusp on ext3/reiserfs these days.]

    When do you have a heart between your knees?
