Wink 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?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
