So, I think instead of adding a new method Standby() which in many ways
is similar to Suspend(), we should rather have a white-list of those
broken machines and just do ACPI S1 on them instead of ACPI S3.
After all, conceptually S1 and S3 are totally similar, I can't imagine
when you want to go S1 instead of S3 .
How about that?
 : maybe to reduce latency on wakeup but that sounds like an
implementation detail rather than something we should expose in the
interface that end-user apps use.
E.g. if we have a nice interface to the kernel we could say "put the
machine to sleep - first go to S1, after 30 minutes go to S3 and after
to hours go to S4". Unfortunately we don't have that just now.
