You are right. My PC supports this via BIOS too. The
disadvantage is, that the bios handle it. I like W2K's
feature to do it ACPI based (?). This gives my the freedom
to suspend my W2K to disk and to reboot with FBSD. Later I
reboot again and choose W2K and it restores it previous
state. If the bios does it, it restores always the last
suspended OS.
