Could't set suspend to ram and suspend to disk with nvidia (common problem), but i'm sure it's solvable. Without X suspend to disk works.

Some special keys (like brighten up and brighten down) are software-dependent, those two are acting strangely for me.

Warning: IdeaPads are not Thinkpads, and kerel drivers like thinkpad_acpi don't work for them.
