I've no idea if it's a 'real' Toshiba, this laptops is released a couple of
years ago ish. It doesn't say anything indicating it has got a phoenix BIOS
though. The configuration interface of the BIOS doesn't look like a phoenix
one (I haven't seen a phoenix laptop BIOS before, but if it's similar to
those PC ones). Can I just assume it's a real Toshiba? (I can try all the
possibilities, just want to save a bit of time...I'm a bummer)

Also, it doesn't use a hibernation partition but a hibernation file under
windows, does that mean there are other possibilities or is the hibernation
file part of S4OS which has nothing to do with S4BIOS?

Is that one a real toshiba?  If not, I used some time ago a toshiba with a
phoenix's notebook bios and after using
this worked for me (but under Linux, though I'm sure it would have
worked under FreeBSD).

If it's a real toshiba, there is some stuff that may be need
to be implemented, using some propritary interfaces documented here: (you need the 2 pdf).
It may be possible also that, when under ACPI mode, all you need is an
IBM suspend partition, but I can't tell for sure.
