Ahh, it's a kernel thing. Good to know. I'm running the SMP 686 kernel
(2.6.15-23-686) and I'm not sure how up to date it is. Maybe I'll troll
around looking for existing bugs and start one up if I don't see one.

On a somewhat related note, I wasn't all that impressed with K/Ubuntu
around the 5.04 days, but recently with my new updated hardware I've
become extremely impressed. They done good.

Not sure what you mean by 'patience for a resume'. Do you mean it takes
a long time to do so? My Linspire laptop used to take almost as long to
resume as it did to boot, but this baby resumes in about 2-3 seconds.
When it doesn't fail, that is :)

My latop is always on the move too. I use it everywhere. Even way out in
the backyard with my new wireless G router :)

Thanks for the info.
