I might as well pile on -- I have Dapper on a Dell Latitude C640, and
neither hibernate nor suspend works.

* When I try to hibernate, all that happens is: the disk churns for a
few seconds, the screen blanks, and then I see the "please enter
your password" prompt from the screen saver.

* Suspending per se seems to work -- the screen goes dark, and the
various lights on the laptop turn off. But when I press the power
button, and the machine comes back to life, the screen is garbled,
and the only cure I know of is a reboot.
