Mandrake 9.2 Suspend Problem


I'm running Mandrake 9.2 on a Dell Inspiron laptop and am using KDE. I am having a problem with the suspend function. If I use the manual suspend using the keyboard (Fn - Suspend), the computer goes into the suspend mode fine. However, if I right-click on the power icon (on the kicker) and select "suspend", the computer briefly accesses the hard-drive and then does nothing.

I have tried using the "kcontrol" panel also: I can set the computer to go into suspend after a given idle time period (i.e. 10 mins), but after I set it on the panel, it never actually works.

Any ideas as to what I can do to fix this?
