Hi polymax and thanks for your email. Since your reply was off-list I
added the list on the recipients of my reply.

I didn't receive any doc with my PC and I didn't search the Internet for
any such documentation as I believe it would be a long shot: HP's
documentation having anything regarding my problem would be a big
surprise to me. Let me remind to you my problem is that suspend works
fine when I ask for it but it fails when run automatically as part of
Gnome's power saving settings. However if you have any helpful links I
would be grateful.

My keyboard (which is an old one bought separately from the PC) does not
have an Fn key. How would that help me? I didn't try to set a shortcut
key as that would not help me with making automatic suspend work.

I didn't "publish" any incorrect data, at least not that I know of.
Maybe there is more info needed but I wouldn't know what exactly. If you
(or anyone else) need more info on my setup please ask for it.
