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?
