Disclaimer: I am not asking for help: I am sharing my experiences.
I've gotten gun-shy regarding suspend. Accordingly, when I flashed os13
and first booted it (not having experienced any problems bringing it up)
I immediately went into My Settings and turned off the checkmark for
power management. I then customized the os13 build (which involved a
couple of reboots), including modifying /etc/powerd/powerd.conf values.
[My values dim before blanking, blank before sleeping, and inhibit
power-down while connected to AC.]
I then noticed that os13 came with olpc-powerd-13. I used yum update to
install olpc-powerd-15 (keeping my own powerd.conf values). Again, no
problems with system behavior (nor with reboot).
Having read the various posts regarding suspend on os13, I put the
checkmark for power management back into My Settings. I let my system
(with powerd-15) go into "hard sleep" (screen dark, power led pulsing).
A touch on the native keyboard brought the XO-1 back to life.
My conclusion: I have no problems using suspend on os13. What I have
run so far on os13 leads me to consider this release as completely usable.
