R40 acpi suspend

Has anyone ever gotten an R40 thinkpad to suspend to ram and disk properly with acpi. I look into this every once in a while and never seem to be able to make inroads. I know the 2.6.10 kernel has the ibm-acpi module in it, but has anyone ever gotten it all to work. I played with it a while ago downloading the source but gave up in the end. If you have, what did it involve. Its one of those things that i'll have to do some day, but it hasnt been very incouraging so far. Cant ever seem to find any succes stories when I google for it.

Suspend to RAM: Yes. Suspend to disk: haven't tried it.

I am using the vanilla kernel 2.6.10 with the ACPI patch from

Also, in my suspend script I remove the modules ehci_hcd and uhci_hcd (USB and USB2.0 modules) before going to sleep. Though some people report that they will survive a suspend/resume cycle with the latest kernel.

I don't think the ibm-acpi kernel really plays around with suspend. It is more to get the various function-keys to work etc.

Note: I'm running XFree86 without DRI. I'm waiting for to be officially supported and hopefully better support for the Radeon 7500 card.
