I've just installed PCLinuxOS on a regular desktop PC. It's working fine except for S3 standby/resume (I'm not interested in S4 hibernate).

What packages do I need to install, and what settings to I need to set, in order to get S3 standby/resume to work?

I'm a Windows geek but just starting with Linux now, so please don't assume too much.

Do you need to know some hardware specs?
The hardware is pretty much a regular PC, nothing fancy and fairly recent. Core 2 Duo, Intel chipset, Nvidia 8400 GS, SATA disk.
