It'll help me on my IBM Thinkpad A30p too. I actually got ACPI successfully
working under FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE, but I couldn't use it because I HAD to
execute `atacontrol detach 1` to unload my CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive before suspending
and rc.suspend wasn't supported by ACPI under 5.1-RELEASE.

Now, if I can manage to get ACPI working again under 5.2-RC2 or -RELEASE then
I'll be able to actively make use of ACPI suspend/resume.
