Hi Radu-Christian,

I have a similar problem with the suspend/hibernate function under 
CentOS 5 on my personal laptop (Acer Travelmate 8204). My latest LiveCD 
respins, which are no longer based on the Adios Live CD project, have 
the same problem with suspend/hibernate.

I will need to test the hibernation functionality under the CentOS 5 
LiveCD (version 5.00) later today to see how it behaves.
