Notes

Hibernation has not been successfully tested (by anyone noted here). It failed with Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) when I tried it with an encrypted swap partition, but that is a known issue with encrypted swap.

Sleep (suspend to ram) does not work out of the box with Ubuntu Lucid, but it can be fixed by following the instructions in this thread: G51JX Suspend in Ubuntu 10.04.

Summary

Most things work fine out of the box with Ubuntu 10.04 64 bits
