Notes

Unlike on other Apple systems of that time, suspend to RAM does not yet work under Linux out of the box, due to lacking re-initialization code for the ATi Rage chip (Linux r128 FB driver). When updated with a Radeon based card with proper re-initialization code in the Linux kernel suspend to RAM just works as usual.
