Sleep/Standby/Hibernation on Mandrake 10
Im going to need to move my Compaq laptop here shortly, and rather than going through the trouble of shutting it down and rebooting, how can I either sleep, standby, or hibernate with it? I have ACPI built in the kernel (and working flawlessly). I do have one of the semi-blacklisted BIOS tables, which complicates things, since certain parts of sleep (I think) are disabled.

same problem with me too.. mandrake 9.1 doesn't seem to standby or restart properly..
change lilo.conf too.. (acpi = on) didn't work.!!

Using swsusp is a good alternative if you have problem with standard ACPI.
Else here's how to suspend to RAM:
echo -n mem >/sys/power/state
