[lug] Huh, that was easy.

I noticed that my kpowersave thingy has a new look since this week's 
upgrade.  But some of the stuff (suspend, cpu frequency) didn't work. 
No surprise, I never installed any suspend stuff and I haven't bothered 
to learn how suspend works to know what I want.  (I only install stuff 
when I know enough about it to know that it's what I want.)

So I asked google why suspend doesn't work and there was mention of 
powersaved.  So I installed it and rebooted.  Then I pushed the suspend 
to ram button and the little crescent moon went on for the first time 
since I've owned this box.

Of course you know that resuming is the hard part, but that worked too. 
  There was a slight delay for the wireless to re-associate and get an 
IP but it happened.

So now I'm going to see if suspend to disk works and when I get up in 
the morning maybe I won't have to type my password for email.  It'll be 
just like Christmas.

Seasons greetings!
