if wireless has been disabled in windows via shortcuts, you have to use the same shortcut to enable it in openSUSE. (GUI won't do the work)
Touchpad is recognized as a simple mouse. If you connect a USB mouse after the boot, it won't be recognized.
On a fresh install, suspend won't work. You can't even force shutdown via the power button. The only solution is to wait or to unplug the battery.
With openSUSE 12.3, this laptop is working really well, have good battery life and overall performance.
