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.

Yes there is, if using KDE under KDE Control just pick power control. you can set your Standby, Suspend, power off times low battery alerts the whole deal just like winbloze. GNOME has it somewhere too but I forget where. I have RH9 on my girlfriends dell laptop and it works just fine
Standby and Suspend are not hibernate. Hibernate is a special feature using the hard drive to store the ram. In which no power is used.
Last time I pulled up K-Laptop or K-Akpi or any of the power control features of kde, I found Suspend and Standby, but only warning messages stating Hibernate was not yet available. So no, there isnt.
Hibernate is part of the ACPI standard, it might be supported for your particular variety of HP, but RedHat doesn't have acpi support in the default 9 install. If you want to try your hand at a 2.4.22 kernel compile, it might work, and there were a ton of acpi updates in 2.4.21, a version ahead of 9's 2.4.20, so that may indeed sort it out. Acpi is still a bit dodgy, and the HPs and Toshibas have a lot of quirks, so this may be just an experiment in compiling if you jump on it.
