Suspend

With Ubuntu 8.04, suspend and hibernate modes does not work out of the box. Be warned.

Kubuntu 7.10 on s6120

Works a treat on Kubuntu 7.10.
Bluetooth, Wifi, everything works out of a default install.
only configuration and extra software to do.

now thats how Linux should work.
screw M$, id be updating to SP2 just to get Bluetooth to work.
That Sucks !
