Works with rotary disc

I'm rather happy to say that on my brand new laptop, IRST works with a rotating disk. I'm less happy to say that my bios+disk need 80s to save and restore the RAM. I hope I'll find, as PSUSI says above, an as yet undescribed acpi method to send the bios a memory usage map before entering S3. The idea is to suspend to disk using (u)swsusp or TuxOnIce and instead of turning off the computer, just writing the kernel image and a few MB (kB ?) of memory to disk using IRST.
