Similar but different yes. Mine is P10-772 (iirc), the one mentioned in
the kernel specs is 5??.

LOL! I wish. fglrx is the ati binary drivers (as asked in the response
from Pavel). According to another friend of mine the answer to this one
is no. He can suspend/resume his notebook as long as he's using the
opensource radeon driver and not fglrx. He's not using a P10 though.

There is only really one error that bothers me, and I read somewhere
that the kernel doesn't look at it's value, and that is the _WAK call
that doesn't return a value. Unless that of course changed recently.
And I can't recompile the DSDT due to those ResourceSource required
errors, which seems to be a bug in iasl.
I still haven't managed to finish of the resume process. The screen
comes back up and console switching works but that is just about where
it ends. I don't see any kernel panic messages either. Will RTFM and
fool around some more.

It's not _that_ heavy! But yes, it is rather noisy, but nothing
compared to these air-conditioners we have here, or my graphics card in
my desktop at home.
