I recently wrote an article about my new laptop. In that article, I mentioned that suspend to RAM just doesn't seem to work. I had seen this website before about Ubuntu on an Inspiron 9300 and tried the suggestions for getting suspend to work...to no avail. Recently, though, I tried it again and it worked. I don't know what has changed, but suspend works for me now. I did revert back to the xorg ATI drivers rather than the ATI proprietary fglrx drivers, but I tried that before, so I guess the xorg ATI drivers were maybe updated.
Anyway, it's nice to see that suspend to RAM and hibernate are mostly working now for me.
