My Asus N56VJ running Ubuntu 14.04 suspends almost perfectly. The only time I have seen it fail is if Wine is up running Picasa which block suspend for some reason. Suspending takes about five seconds, on restore it will be up on the login screen by the time I get the display open.

That said, complain to the optometrist, they may be able to remake the lenses with a physically larger reading area. They might not charge you for it if you are truly dissatisfied with what you got.
And all this time I thought it was Frankenmuth.
Or Louisiana. Or Virginia.
Maybe there's a 12 step program...
If there was EVER a vehicle that could use regenerative brakes, it is a garbage truck. Also the post office truck or whatever that thing is.
What happens when some beer drinking redneck puts a bullet through one of those batteries?
