Linux Software Suspend

Finally, after several years of periodic attempts my laptop is now able to suspend to disk. In the last couple of days its been powered up and down several times without ever shutting down my applications. Not quite sure why it took so long to get this working properly. It was the finally feature that made me consider switching OSs (not seriously of course!).

Now that its working I need to find a way to easily trigger it. Perhaps in the lid closed event in /etc/acpid? For some reason gnome power manager still doesn't think that suspend is an option so I'm having to do it from the command line.
