Yup.  So, it looks like, if this laptop is to develop a sleep mode, I'll need
to write new code for it.  The one other option is to put in a scratch drive
and play with HP's factory restore disk; it may be possible to create a
partition with that, but the only documented way to do it on any laptop
involves wiping the disk - and there's no reference to it in the docs for
the Pavilion line of notebooks.

Basically, all of the docs that refer to this say there's a BIOS option
for suspend mode; there isn't, on this machine, so I'm guessing this BIOS
doesn't really support hibernation itself, and the OS has to do the work.
