LUKS + RAID + LVM2 and suspend to ram

Greetings, slackers!
I use LUKS + RAID + LVM2 on all my partitions, except /boot certanly. I wish to use s2ram -- suspend to RAM (it worked earlier). It will work with LUKS + RAID + LVM2 ?

I don't know, but let me know how it works; I haven't gotten around to trying that yet.

I use suspend to disk even on my laptop (with LUKS/LVM). Adding RAID should make no difference. All you need to have is the LVM (filesystems plus swap) created in the LUKS-encrypted container.
With my IBM ThinkPad I use these ACPI scripts: which allow me to use the Fn-F4 and Fn-F12 keys of my T42 for suspend to ram / disk.

It should work, but it is not secure since the encryption key is sitting in RAM. If someone steals your suspended laptop, they can resume from RAM and get all your data. If you do suspend-to-RAM and you need not enter your luks password on resume, you know you have a security issue.
