Suspend to RAM with fglrx
Attempting to suspend to RAM using the proprietary fglrx ATI
video driver from the restricted component will hard-lock the system
due to changes in the kernel's memory allocator (which will be the
default in Linux 2.6.23) that have not been followed by ATI in a
timely fashion; this is the vendor's responsibility and is beyond our
control due to the proprietary nature of the driver. Workarounds
include using Ubuntu 7.04, avoiding suspending to RAM, or using the
free ATI driver. Bug #121653
There are other problems as well, but they are livable/ have workarounds.

I use KDE, so I open it with "ccsm" in Alt-F4.

I _may_ have installed the older drivers by mistake. I'll reinstall
and try again. Thanks.
A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
