Hey, I can't believe the thing! I got hibernate working with the new beta 173.08 driver!!!
This is the first time ever I got successful wakeup from hibernate on my T61 with nVidia driver, but please remember, this happened just once!
I'll report on stability of the thing, but for those interested, this is my config:
