On a Sony VAIO VGN-B1XP, I experience the same as Vincent described. =20
The laptop goes into suspend mode without problems, but on trying to =20
wake it up, only some leds (wifi, power) and the fan become active. I =20
have set a bios password and have config'ed nearly everything out of =20
the kernel, but the result is the same.
