My friend's M1210 did suspend when lid close.
I think its a driver issue - if you use the dell provided driver - it should work - albeit not very well - I have problems with it sometimes not turning back on again (unless I let it go back into power save mode - and even then doesn't always work - sometimes pressing fn+f8 helps) and if it does turn on, the screen does this "repainting refresh" and sometimes my taskbar quadruples in size on its own too....
If you are using a non-dell driver, all the problems should stop - but the screen wont turn off on lid close
this is my experience with the dell 8200 on the nvidia go - and it seems to be happening on the m1210 too :-( Why can't dell just do it right at least the second time...
