There was a BIOS issue with Linux on certain Foxconn boards earlier this year. It's been resolved, but I've forgotten how one tells/which BIOS revision contains the fix.
Come to think of it, I've never actually seen confirmation from a source in the field the BIOS update was ever released, or indeed addresses the problem...only a statement from some purporting to be a Foxconn engineer promising to release a fix in short order.
I haven't yet had chance to test whether this actually affects the running of the OS or the ability to suspend and resume, because I've had numerous other problems with this board including 1066MHz memory only running at 800MHz and USB devices not working after a reboot (under both Windows and Linux). Whether the onboard HD Audio works correctly under Windows is also an open question - I've tried XPSP2, XPSP3, and Server 2008 and all froze on boot with sound enabled. I've now got it working by unplugging everything from the motherboard, but I've not yet had time to plug each device back in one at a time to find out whether any of them is killing Windows...
Oh quit the fud, foxconn responded quick to that. No conspiracy needed. Bugs occur, it's a part of computing life. If that's too much for people to handle then they should stick to Speak'n'Spells for their computing needs.
