My kingdom, my kingdom for S3 suspend to RAM!

After spending (wasting) this whole evening hacking on the disassembled ACPI machine language ripped from the firmware of my laptop (ACPI assembly language is strange), studying the stupid ACPI 2.0 specification and mucking around in the code of the latest BitKeeper snapshot of the latest 2.5 development Linux kernel, I am still no closer to a usable S3 suspend to RAM. The sleep button simply refuses to wake the laptop up: Maybe that’s why it’s called a sleep button.

I am starting to suspect that the writers of the firmware did a terribly half-arsed job. Durnit.
