I've had some nice experiences with Windows(XP)'s suspend functionality, and it seems to work on all machines I've worked with.
and the other day I just had a successful resume on my machine with "s2ram -f -m -p", but it takes like a minute for it to fully recover to a terminal (tty/1).
(ps: my computer is a desktop with AMD RS780 chipset, which isn't supported by KMS yet)
Unlike Windows ones, which only take like 3-5 seconds to wake up, linux takes much longer, I don't know if this is common...
My question is: What's the average resume time of yours, and is it possible to be any faster ?
My somewhat slow laptop (Pentium M 1.60Ghz, 512MB RAM) resumes fully from in about 5 seconds (yes, on Arch Linux). Your figure seems very high at one full minute. Did you check the logs? Maybe it is also loading some stuff from the swap file which it will do in case it couldn't fit it all in RAM.
