	Suspend and resume?

I guess no... However, I'm very ignorant of suspend/resume,
so not sure I'm doing the right thing.

- the T61p manual details "standby" and "hibernation" modes.
Is this what you refer to by suspend?
I can go into standby with Fn+F4, or with "acpiconf -s 3"
but can't seem to get back. The disk starts, but the
screen is corrupted, kind of black with very few white dots.
I have to power off/on. 

The Fn+F12, hibernation mode code, does not seem to
do anything.

- I've had a quick look at acpi(4) and apm(8).
I have:

hw.acpi.supported_sleep_state: S3 S4 S5
hw.acpi.s4bios: 0

-  Anything I should check/test in BIOS?
I see that power management is enabled in BIOS.
Is that enough?
