Suspend/StandBy on a Laptop
I am a Newbie, so keep the jargon gentle!
I have Fedora Core 4 on a laptop, and I want to be able to suspend the computer as one can do in Windows so I don't have to reboot the entire OS every time. When I right click on the tool bar at the top, there is an option to SUspend, but it always says it is unsuccessful. It is trying to execute /usr/bin/apm -s. All the other posts about suspending or going on standby here don't seem to help me. Is it that I can only do this as root?
