The impression I had gotten from various messages to this list had
been that there still were problems with ACPI on ThinkPads, especially
with freezes on suspend/resume. Did you do anything special to avoid
such problems, or are you just lucky, or what? I'm about to install
onto a T41p and was going to skip ACPI and stick with APM, because I
don't want the hassle, but if ACPI works, great.
