Which filesystem are you using? If you are using ext3 you should
consider a switch to JFS. JFS is faster and has been rock solid
despite numerous crashes while trying to get suspend to work on my
laptop. Ext3 is (alot) slower but is considered the most reliable
filesystem. Ext3 is a slight enhancement to ext2 which has been tested
for a decade or so. JFS is an old IBM filesystem, but is relatively
new to Linux.
