    Thanks! The key (mentioned in the documentation there) is to disable
    framebuffer (ATI video card). First time I've had suspend-to-RAM working
    on this machine. ;)

    Suspending works with `s2ram -f`, no other options needed, from X.

    # s2ram -i
    This machine can be identified by:
    sys_vendor = "Dell Computer Corporation"
    sys_product = "Inspiron 5100 "
    sys_version = ""
    bios_version = "A23"

    Though you may want to rename the /usr/sbin/suspend command to something
    other than 'suspend' as, at least for me, it is a shell command which
    puts the current shell in the background.

    The HOWTO *does* mention:
    [Warning: some shells have "suspend" built in command, so specifing
    exact path like ./suspend is more important than usual.]

    Though I still believe it'd be a good idea to pick a non-conflicting name.
