I just checked.  Its shipped with a toshiba bios.

S4BIOS is a sort of compatibility thing when the OS is unable to provide
a way to suspend-to-disk (and require a suspend partition or sometimes a FAT95
partition as the first primary which I think is the case for you).
S4OS is when the OS is able to suspend-to-disk with minimal
help from the BIOS.  With S4OS, you just have to design how you
save memory to disk since thats no more provided by the BIOS.
