With recent change in ACPI and in time handling, I was wondering what
should be the behaviour of uptime(1) when we start to deal with sleep (with ACPI
S3 or APM). uptime(1) defines it as "the length of time the system has
been up" but when the laptop goes into sleep mode, is it still considered as
being up or not ?

Thanks in advance,
