ACPI works.
Software-Suspend from kernel 2.6.12 works.

According to dmesg the following ACPI-events are supported:
ACPI: AC Adapter [AC] (on-line)
ACPI: Battery Slot [BAT0] (battery absent)
ACPI: Power Button (FF) [PWRF]
ACPI: Lid Switch [LID]
ACPI: Sleep Button (CM) [SLPB]
ACPI: Processor [CPU0] (supports C1 C2 C3, 8 throttling states)

The Sleep Button (Fn+F4) does not work. Who wants to write a driver?

When running acpid you can configure in /etc/acpi/ how the flybook should react to each ACPI-event.
For details please consult the acpid manpage/documentation and the example files in /etc/acpi/

Software-Suspend / Hibernate

Activate it in the kernel. There is no need for patching the kernel with swsusp2
Install the hibernate-package (apt-get install hibernate)
Adapt the file /etc/hibernate/hibernate.conf to your needs.

Comment everything in the swsusp2_15-section and uncomment the following lines instead:
UseSysfsPowerState disk
# choose one from standby, mem or disk
PowerdownMethod shutdown

Uncomment the line
SwitchToTextMode yes

A file /etc/acpi/events/powerbtn will have been installed by the acpid-package. If not, create it.

-------- /etc/acpi/events/powerbtn --------
event=button[ /]power
-------- /etc/acpi/events/powerbtn --------

This will run the script /etc/acpi/ when the power-button is pressed.

Create/Modify /etc/acpi/

-------- /etc/acpi/ --------
# /etc/acpi/
# Initiates a shutdown when the power putton has been
# pressed.

-------- /etc/acpi/ --------

This will run hibernate when the power-button is pressed.

Hibernating and resuming works out-of-the-box. Only the touchscreen needs to be reinitialized.

Resuming the Touchscreen

You need a program to initialize the touchscreen after resuming. Download it from Elmar's Flybook Page.
Untar it to a directory, compile and install it:
make; make install
The program will be installed to /usr/bin/

Now you can initialize the touchscreen by running pentinit from a shell as root.

For doing this automatically when resuming create a file /usr/share/hibernate/scriptlets.d/tsi

-------- /usr/share/hibernate/scriptlets.d/tsi --------
# -*- sh -*-
# vim:ft=sh:ts=8:sw=4:noet

tsiResume() {

tsiOptions() {
    if [ -z "$TSI_HOOKED" ] ; then
        AddResumeHook 01 tsiResume
    return 0
