Some observations on newer laptops

Well, so In that last two weeks I've setup Fedora Core 3 on a thinkpad x40 and a dell inspiron 6000, the IBM works fine, though for me it doesn't have enough display to be usable.

I've surveyed several modern distributions on the dell (fc3, fc4 test 3, man(drake/driva) 10.2. and I must say the honeymoon was pretty short lived. I still haven't figured out how to make the thing sleep which is pretty much a non-starter for me. display is nice, the thing isn't significantly bigger than the inspiron 4150, though it is wider.
