My i5/intel graphics Tecra M-11 does not wake from suspend under Ubuntu 13.04. Also cannot install Google Chrome browser because a libudev version requirement “cannot be satisfied”. Battery life is terrible (< 2 hrs) but I think this is a characteristic of the machine. Sound initially did not work but mysteriously started working after I ran sound test in Ubuntu system panel.
