Actually I have been using Suse 9.1's powersave and powersaved
utilities for a couple of months now on my T42p and I would highly
recommend them.

Note that by default powersave settings are not to enable suspsend to
RAM (ACPI S3) or hibernate (suspend to disk) - you will have to
reenable them. Read the man page of powersave and powersaved.

As far as I know every newer kernel is better than an older one, because ACPI is still under development (for example kernel 2.6.9 is the first kernel in which usb support suspend). So by this rule Suse 9.2 must be better. But I suppose the easiest way is only to change the kernel.
