anyone working on a suspend/hibernate driver

would this be a big deal to do?

well don't know about desperate but willing to bet that some enterprising ppl will come up with a way to load up the command (cmd.exe/DOS) line interface on the pi. im banking on the communities desire to prove other people ill-informed at proposing limits on hardware.  just my two cents.
