The sleep entry is missing here too on Asus M5N with 2.6.13-1.1524_FC4, will try
2.6.13-1.1525_FC4 now.

/proc/acpi/sleep is depreciated since: 

commit ebb6e1a6122fd6b7c96470cfd4ce0f04150e5084

    [ACPI] Deprecate /proc/acpi/sleep in favor of /sys/power/state
    Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>

You should be able to use: 

echo -n "mem" > /sys/power/state 
(to suspend to ram) 


echo -n "disk" > /sys/power/state
(to suspend to disk)
