Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am debian (sarge) user and I have hotkeys working,
but the suspend key or the suspend process when I shut my laptop down is not working.
I have a dell i600m and gnome.
does anybody know anything about?
How isn't it working? i.e., is it not suspending, failing to restart after a suspend. Either could be the ACPI settings. They're generally settable in the laptop's BIOS. If that's not it, explaining how it's not working might help diagnose the problem.
"acpid" is the daemon that handles the ACPI stuff in the background. I'm not sure it absolutely needs to be installed for the power functions to work, but it couldn't hurt. As for setting the gnome options, aside from checking the gnome configuration screens I'm not sure. I personally use KDE or a light-weight WM.
