Thanks for the feedback, glad to hear someone has the same laptop!

I see: hibernate works here too... but the suspend to disk worked before
I installed it too... no change.

I can't find susp2mem anywhere in Debian, any version:

http://packages.debian.org/search?searchon=contents&keywords=susp2mem&mode=pa th&suite=unstable&arch=any

Where do you take that binary from??

I noticed that hibernate-ram *does* work, but:

a) it doesn't lock the screen in Gnome
b) Gnome doesn't invoke hibernate-ram for some reason, but some hack
around my "echo mem > /sys/power/state" (the effect is the same, ie.
the screen remains lit when sleeping)

So as a workaround I can type "hibernate-ram" in a terminal, but it's a
really bad workaround since anyone that pops my laptop open get my full
active session.

I also need to clarify that I of course upgraded from *etch* to lenny
and all occurences of "sarge" in my original email should be read as
