Hi, I am using an old machine (Windows 98 era) to run Ubuntu 9.10 and I'm trying to get it to enter a standby/suspend state.

When I choose suspend from the user menu, the monitor shuts down for a second then returns with with a textual display naming my motherboard/processor.

Maybe I need to tweak a BIOS setting? Maybe the motherboard just doesn't support suspend? I'm not too knowledgeable about modifying hardware settings...
