Hi all,

Attempting to get suspend working on a TP 600E, LFS kernel 2.4.23.

Have compiled and instaklled apmd.  However suspend (apm -s) does not
work for the 'ordinary' user, only root.  Some googling gave me 2
possible options, use sudo/make apm suid.  I'm concerned however that
neither addresses the 'suspend on lid close' ability.

Is there a howto out there somewhere that covers suspend and
hibernation (my next project) please.

Much appreciated.
