    I´m using a Toshiba Tecra8100 with SuSE10.1.
    Suspend to disk works principally, but
    when powering on the system again after
    a suspend to disk, it takes 3-xx minutes
    until grub has finished loading the kernel.
    Each step from grub seems to be slowed down
    drastcially. During this time, the hard
    disk LED is lit permanently.

    Once the kernel starts up,
    the system state is restored correctly.

    What could be wrong? Is it a grub problem
    or is the IDE controller in some odd state?
