Issue tracking for Linux Laptops...

Idly trying to get my (Lenovo W500) to suspend again this morning as I wait for the washing machine to finish.  Biggest problem is that there are so many sites all with outdated information so I have to filter through hundreds of posts most of which are discussing e.g. Ubuntu 8.10 (which suspended fine with compiz disabled), or how to get compiz+suspend working (I don't need the effects).

Seems we need a tracker somewhere that "moves" with the current version of Ubuntu, where we can install, test each component and report status and any work-arounds needed.  You'd be able to look at the 8.10, but 9.04 would be what's there by default.  You could search within each component's history...

Or we could all just write nice-o-grams to Lenovo to tell *them* to support Linux properly on their machines.

Ah well, laundry is finished, so no suspense for me...
