ACPI Problems

I am using Fedora Core 2 and whenever I press my laptop's power button, instead of going into suspend, it shutsdown.

Also, I would like to be able to have the machine go into Suspend whenever I close this lid. Any assistance on how to do this in FC2 or SuSE 9.1 would be greatly appreciated.

What are the model numbers? The more detail you can provide, the easier it is for others to help out. -- J.W.
