I also made the Great Migration from Feisty to Etch with xfce
to find greater stability and ease of use.
Etch has an automatic powerdown with an adjustable time-delay
(somewhere - I'm still adjusting from gnome), and a 'suspend' option
I've been pleasantly surprised to have to revive via password
a number of times.
At the moment of writing, hibernate works, and is placed on
the s2disk whitelist. In contrast, s2ram is not whitelisted.
Checking 's2ram --force' results in a suspend to memory, but
some things did not restore correctly such as network, etc.
However, /etc/acpi/sleep.sh does work for me. Test it for
yourself from the commandline:
suggests installing the 'acpi-support' package. apt-get reccomends
also installing 'laptop-mode-tools' ..
Apparently there is a 'sleep' hot-key (Fn+Esc), see
Another way is to add a kernel option ..
