I'd basically given up on ever seeing a day when my Toshiba laptop would suspend and resume properly. Loaded Mint 7 on it and just for grins set it to suspend when I close the lid and damned if it didn't actually work!
It takes a few seconds but even the wireless re-connects after resuming.
I'd also like to mention the huge improvement in USB devices, external hard drives in particular. Plug and play works exactly how it should, it's not even hit or miss like it has been in Linux for a while, not just picking on Mint.
When I plug a drive in now, it's mounted, the desktop icon pops up and I'm good to go.
7 is coming along nicely, not that we'd expect anything less from the Mint guys.
