I'll try that ;-)
Suspend to RAM as always been a pain in my various trials, but this is a 
much simpler goal than a complete laptop.
Virtually no device to take down/bring up on a pure streamdev client. 
NFS handles must just survive the long delay, but it should be OK.

This also works around an annoying bug in the (non-upgraded) EPIA BIOS: 
the PXE LAN boot does not always initialize the network interface after 
a shutdown. One have to unplug power to boot correctly next time...
