      Gregory,

      It is possible to suspend the laptop without exiting X and unloading
      NVdriver. Basically you have to change nv.c so that it returns a 0 on a
      suspend call instead of a 1 (you can find the relevant section by searching
      for "suspend" in the code). Then recompile. For this to work stably, you
      have to turn off AGP in the X server--put
      Option "NvAGP" "0"
      in the device section of your X config.

      For more details on this, search the archives for this list for "rudi".

      James
