	While amd64 suspend is still in alpha stage, I'm not sure what the  
status was for x86 suspend... I have a T61p as well, and unfortunately  
not having proper ACPI is holding me back from dumping Windows on my  
work laptop ;\. I'll defer to someone else that knows more about it  
than me :).
	Also, what version did you install (x86 or amd64)?
