Description of problem:
I feel like the Linux Kernel does not support notebooks : (I have a
Siemens E685)
 - when I close the screen of my notebook, and open it again, my
system becomes very very very slow.

 - While it is fully supported in the last versions of microsoft
windows, in linux, notebook users do not have a true battery
management, a full standby support.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Close your notebook

suspend support is still very much in development in the upstream 2.6
kernel. This will never be backported to 2.4 (nor RHL9).

(I assume you misfiled this, and didnt really mean RHL 4.2)

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
