   5If you want to trick swsusp/S3 into working, you might want to try:
   6
   7* go with minimal config, turn off drivers like USB, AGP you don't
   8  really need
   9
  10* turn off APIC and preempt
  11
  12* use ext2. At least it has working fsck. [If something seems to go
  13  wrong, force fsck when you have a chance]
  14
  15* turn off modules
  16
  17* use vga text console, shut down X. [If you really want X, you might
  18  want to try vesafb later]
  19
  20* try running as few processes as possible, preferably go to single
  21  user mode.
  22
  23* due to video issues, swsusp should be easier to get working than
  24  S3. Try that first.
  25
  26When you make it work, try to find out what exactly was it that broke
  27suspend, and preferably fix that.
