    NUC ACPI Sleep/Resume in Linux

    dealcorn

      Phoronix reported that the Linux 3.5 Kernel contains several ACPI related updates from Intel developer Len Brown that provide initial Ivy Bridge support for the intel_idle driver.  I have no idea what that means. 

       

      Can anyone confirm that sleep to ACPI state G1/S4 and resume work in Linux 3.5 or better on some Ivy Bridge computer?  My particular interest is in a NUC DC3217IYE I plan to set up as a disk-less station.  I have some ancient distasteful memories of boot times on a disk-less 80286 machine in a Token Ring/ Netware environment.  Subjectively, a speedy resume from network may feel like a boot from SSD.  I find that appealing is a diskless machine.
