Suspend on my laptop

I have a Dell inspiron 8600. I can't get suspend or any of my laptop combo keys to work when FC3 is running (BIOS batter life button for example). These worked on this particular laptop with FC2. I don't know where to start rather than the obvious.....screen saver settings....display settings....

I asked my OS teacher, he seems to think I'll need to change an option in xconfig and recompile the kernel. I don't this related to ACPI (SP?)?

I need it to go to sleep when I close the lid. As it is now, I have to power off and reboot when I move from class to class (annoying!). Almost makes me use win at school.

Any leads would be great
