      With my BIOS set to "suspend to RAM", "apm -s" does a suspend to
      RAM, but "apm -S" just spins down the hard drive and makes the
      screen go black (but not *blank*, it is still on). Even worse,
      the hard drive spins back up and the screen is redisplayed after
      about 1 second.

      I'm pretty sure I also tried this when I had my BIOS set to "suspend
      to disk", but it's hard for me to check now since I would have to
      recreate my suspend to disk partition. (I deleted it so I would
      have more disk space.) I wonder why it works for you and not for
      me. Does it work for others on the list?

      Can anyone confirm whether Windows can do this?
