Re: Suspend/Hibernate - does it work for you?
Suspend-to-memory work for me on two boxes, both nforce 4 motherboards:
1) Gigabyte K8NXPSLI, 7600GT, 184.108.40.206, 9742-beta
2) Foxconn NF4K8MC-ERS, 7600GS or 6600GT, 220.127.116.11, 9742-beta
I have tried to get STR working several times over the last couple of years, first time it has all come together. Good news.
Only blemish is that the nforce 4 ethernet port does not resume. On the Foxconn board I do it manually (/etc/init.d/net.eth0 restart). The Gigabyte motherboard has two Gbit ethernet ports and the one driven by the Marvel 8053 does resume, manually trying to restart the nforce 4 ethernet fails.
I dont think I will bother with suspend-to-ram, the power savings of suspend-to-ram are good enough (100 W idle -> 10 W in suspend).
