If you run gnome-power-manager just pressing the "sleep" button on your
computer or your keyboard should suffice. Otherwise use the
System->Suspend menu option in GNOME. See
for details. I believe you can even run this from KDE or other desktops
that support the freedesktop.org
notification area spec.
For command line use 'pm-suspend'; it doesn't require root if (and only
if) you are logged in at the console.
