That's an interesting question. Proprietary BIOSes used to do suspend to disk
- I had a laptop 7 years ago that did it (HP Omnibook XE2). Every laptop I've
owned since then does not have a suspend feature.

Would having the BIOS do suspend require a BIOS callback? What was described
in this thread made it sound like a callback is necessary.
