Have you made sure that suspend-on-lid-close isn't disabled in the BIOS? 
On most thinkpads, this function can be enabled/disabled in the BIOS.

You'll probably have to use the PS2.EXE utility with a DOS
boot disk to set that up.  (Maybe a utility like tpctrl can do it?)

Hope you've got a DOS partition!  If you want BIOS hinernation, you'll
need a DOS partition and the PS2.EXE utility to create the hibernation

(Assuming 600E wotks like a 600 here...)
