Well here's another tough nut to crack:
After the good replies on my post about how to compile the kernel for newbies, i now have a more specific question but also a very pertinent one.
I've been trying to find a way to put linux to work on my laptop (an ASUS L3500D with an AMD athlon 2000+) i have tried A LOT of distros and there isn't a single one that does such a simple thing that windows does with no problem whatsoever:
How the hell do i put linux to standby and/or suspend? Is it impossible to do it without compiling the kernel?
Are all newbies forever doomed to have their laptops unable to suspend and having an hour less of battery time compared to windows?
Please tell me it ain't so...
