Thanks for that info!

The reason I ask is that I would like to ditch my current AMD/Nvidia 
combo for an Intel board with integrated graphics and DVI --on board or 
via ADD2. Most importantly, I would like to have a desktop machine that 
can S3 reliably without video or data corruption.

Besides normal testing of S3 suspend, do you use personally S3 suspend 
on a regular basis? If so, can you comment on your experiences?

Thanks you for the info.
