sleep functionality in desktops

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – So I've been thinking of assembling my own Linux machine, and I was wondering whether just as there are video cards that have superior linux support, there are also motherboards with a higher degree of compatibility. For instance my old Dell dual-booter sleeps fine in Windows, but it locks under Xubuntu. Has anyone studied this? Thanks. (HowTos)
