 I've got a netbook running ubuntu (haven't found time to look at
building LFS, or even my own kernel, on it), and the only time I
have to reboot it is when I forget to plug it in to the charger.

 The rest of the time, it suspends to RAM (tried suspend to disk when
I first got it, but something, probably the screen, was trashed on
resume).

 No real idea *how* suspend is controlled (previously, on ibooks, I
used pbbuttonsd :) but it might be a more practical approach than
trying to speed time when booting.

 Actually, I might find time to take a look at suspend :  I've
found manpages for s2ram and s2both online - s2both supposedly needs
an initrd to resume from disk if the power ran out, and perhaps
plays about with grub.
