Dunno how long it takes to suspend - you shut the lid and it suspends!
Takes a little less than 5 seconds to resume after you press the power
button (after opening the lid).

My comments yesterday were a little negative, I suspect. In it's favour,
it weighs 900g, has a clear enough display and runs for several hours on
it's battery. Probably not as good as an OLPC (B4), but not bad for
something that you can actually walk into a shop in Canberra and buy
"off-the-shelf" (at least you will be able to later this week) and runs
Linux "out-of-the-box" with everything supported. Even includes a couple
of games that I had never gotten around to installing and playing before
(but not Wesnoth!!!).
