Hrm, mine seems to give off no heat when suspended. Only time I've had 
an issue is when something prevented the system from properly suspending 
and I failed to notice. Lappy was quite toasty in the bad when I went to 
grab it a few hours later. Nowadays though, gnome-power-manager screams 
loudly (makes a very audible noise) if suspend fails, but I've only 
heard it once or twice, and not from my own laptop.
