For anyone interested, I have suspend to ram and suspend to disk in
kpowersave working on Dell Inspiron 8500 w/Nvidia Geforce4 Go video
card. Here is what I did.

Install Nvidia 8762 driver (8756 did not work)
Change /etc/sysconfig/powersave/sleep file as follows



Added Option "NvAGP" "1" to /etc/X11/xorg.conf after the
VendorName "NVidia" line.

# blacklist agp module
blacklist intel_agp
to /etc/modprobe.conf.local

The modprobe.conf.local seemed to be the biggest help. The nvidia agp
driver is still loaded, just not the intel one.

Spent 4 hours trial and error and internet searches to find the answeer.
Maybe this will save someone else the hassle.
