  3. tuxonice: set of kernel patches that provide a versatile and feature-rich extensible kernel-land framework.

As for higher-level mechanisms, we have:

  1. pm-utils: wrappers to upower; used to wrap HAL
  2. acpi events: event-triggered suspend/hibernate (buttons, lids, etc.)
  3. polkit with upower actions: used by polkit-aware applications
  4. others
...
This shows that there are quite some ways to go. Additionally I found that we already have a short HOWTO about suspend and hibernate at Slackdocs. Maybe someone adds his experiences in order to make it more complete.

Furthermore I wonder if we shouldn't start a poll here at LQ about which way Slackware users enable suspend and hibernate on their laptops, but I'm not yet sure which questions to ask.

Well, indeed I don't want you to leave Slackware

I'm guessing if such a question is asked to Slackers --- people who routinely pop open terminals and text editors to provide their own solutions, that the result will be many "geek" answers. We've already seen as much in this thread.

Possibly a more relevant question is how to best design the stock Slackware such that non-root users can place laptops to sleep without imitating Houdini. The goal should be that sleep "just works."

Yeah, I knew that.

My goal would be to provide one Slackware-way which is documented very well. This would point newbies in the right direction.

I think those of us who want it to "just work" use KDE or XFCE. I'm using Xmonad and I3 and have the same issues when installing a new laptop.

I'm tagging this thread as solved. Refer to Comment 4 for the solution I used.

As noted in the thread, some folks reported that suspend/sleep works out of the box without the pkla file. I don't know why.
