Re: nvidia-settings + suspend2 problems
suspend to disk worked back in 8774, then problem has been present for me since I upgraded to 9626, then I downgraded to 8774, just in case, and it was still freezing... now I just go on upgrading, hoping it'll be fixed. that's prolly the last issue I have with this (great) laptop.
regarding s2r, I had the same issue (search on gentoo forums). then, it suddently disappeared. I have been tinkering various things, and it seems using 2.6.18 kernel and vesafb(tng) allows for things to work.
