Cool that somebody started an article on that. Just by coincidence I also made my experience with Suspend2 tonight. I will add details I discovered soon (NVidia stuff, Sound stuff).
Are you sure about the need of the acpi package? I don't even have it and my system suspends just fine. The powersave package has a dep on acpi, not the hibernate scripts though, AFAIK.
As for the possibility of executing the script as a user: Couldn't the permissions of the hibernate script be changed so that members of the "power" group (seems to exist by default) can execute it.
Anyone tried out Gnome Power Manager already - does it play nice with the hibernate scripts?
ACPI is definitely not needed. You can run hibernate as a user via sudo. But powersaved >= 1.12 supports hibernate, so you could do it with kpowersave and/or gnome-power-whatever. brain0 04:55, 7 June 2006 (EDT)
Has anyone tried suspend to disk with encryption e.g. as described here? Are there other ways to encrypt the suspend image?
package kernel26-suspend2 was removed from the official repo. (see here http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=38578 )
ProcSetting no longer supported?
ProcSetting extra_pages_allowance 0
to my hibernate/common.conf. When I then run "hibernate", I get:
hibernate: Unknown configuration option (procsetting)

Pm-utils does now allow specifying the core you want to use.

Stroke out the outdated parts. Should be rmoved IMHO.

Interacting with HAL
Hello, I just edited the "Interacting with HAL" section to hopefully show the simplest way to make HAL use hibernate-script, so that desktop power managers will work. The old solution may not work now that policykit is being used, but I left it in.

Perhaps it would be worth mentioning that grub configuration needs to modified as well. It requires resume=/your/root/partition to grub menu as a boot option
Dropping Disk Caches
Adding something like this to common.conf is probably a better idea than writing the command yourself every time:
- Drop disk caches
OnSuspend 00 sync && echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
