Not really; SuSE does a lot better job of this than other distros but
it's not so much putting a machine into suspend mode that's difficult;
it's the selective power-down modes (i.e. HD poweroff) that are really
difficult to configure; when you want your machine to drop down to low
power consumption without shutting it off.
