Problem with suspend to disk.

I don"t know whether this problem is specific to a laptop, but when I try to go to the suspend to disk it sais that it can't unmount a ntfs partition where windows is written. Still if I say ignore or cancel the computer goes in standby. Can this problem be fixed so the partition is unmounted automatically?

So you have suspend2disk setup using a partition? Which one and where is it located? Does suspend to disk work from XP without errors? Does Suse9.2 cover the topic in manual or forum?
Does tuxmobile or lappy maker's web page have suspend2disk notes or updates? Have you reviewed any linux-on-laptop install notes for your lappy that cover suspend to disk?
