This is an HP n5490.  A bit of study suggests that this may be related to
whether or not there's a dedicated hibernate partition available.  If there
is, the BIOS can probably suspend to it - but the partition has to exist.

The problem, of course, is that I don't have any spare holes in the FDISK
table.  Unfortunately, none of the OS's in question can be installed into
an extended partition, so far as I know, so I need to either sacrifice one,
or not have a hibernate partition.
