I am always curious to find out how people suspend and what their
timeouts are...  would you mind sharing?

At the moment, I just run my computer 24/7 on the front end, but this is
a small form factor desktop, so it does hog energy.

I have my Live TV time out at 1.5 hrs, but I still haven't dabbled in
any suspending yet.
