For APM machines it's entirely done by the BIOS. For ACPI that's a bit different, but that should be possible either. Btw, I got apm suspend/standby to work quite reliably on my K6-2, after forcing it into VESA mode (the BIOS doesn't like the way the gfx card is initialized). When I get a laptop I'll get onto better apm/acpi support. About Pcmcia cards, BeOS handles pcmcia cards quite nicely (using the Linux stuff btw). François.
