There are two suspend modes, suspend to disk and suspend to ram.
The first almost always works as long as your swap space equals
or exceeds your actual memory.  The latter is still problematic but
I have gotten it to work on a Dell 9400.

I have also gotten the Fn-F1 on keyboard to work.  I don't remember
how id did this or if I did anything at all to make it work.
(OpenSuse 10.2).  Kpowersave also has a suspend to disk feature
that works fine.
