Dell Latitude E6500 hibernate/suspend problems

A quick post... I'm in Toronto and having a good time. Missing my darling and my son, though. I got a new laptop, a Dell Latitude E6500. It's great, but I've been having problems getting it to suspend or hibernate. It would just sit there and try, but fail. The fix was to roll-back to the prior version of the Creative integrated webcam driver. I had updated the driver from Windows Update, and evidently the new one is no good. The version that's working is 1.3.2.919, dated 9/19/2008. Thanks to "eprosound" on the Dell forums for the tip.
