By default KDE4 seems to be using pm-utils and HAL. I would like to use Tuxonice instead. Any ideas how to do that? Thanks.

The kernel? Emerge tuxonice-sources and configure the kernel. KDE is a DE and has nothing to do with the kernel.

I recommend using Pappy's Kernel Seeds.

I do use tuxonice-sources and when I do a hibernate-ram or hibernate in CLI, the tuxonice mechanism is used. This also shows in the tuxonice logs. However, when I choose suspend to RAM or suspend to disk in the KDE menus, some other suspend mechanism seems to be used, most likely something via HAL, because it doesn't show in the tuxonice logs. Maybe I am wrong, I don't know.

Did you set CONFIG_TOI_REPLACE_SWSUSP=y in Kernel, so the standard hibernate mechanism is replaced by the tuxonice's one?

Yes, I did.

No, I pretty much gave up trying to figure this out.

KDE4 doesn't use the hibernate script but pm-utils. As long as you have that kernel option to replace swsusp with toi pm-hibernate will hibernate with toi.
If you don't get splash/ui check that the correct toi userspace ui program is set in kernel.

Yeah, I suspected that pm-utils was involved. I have the toi set in the kernel, however, whenever I do a suspend from the KDE menus, I can see the splash/ui screen but nothing is logged in the toi log. When I do a hibernate or hibernate-ram, I can see afterward what happened in the toi log. Do you think toi is used in both cases above? Thanks.

If you see the splash/ui from tuxoniceui_* then yes, you are using toi.
I don't know what log you are talking about, probably it is some log generated by the hibernation script. pm-hibernate logs its own log as well, check /var/log/pm-suspend.log.

You're right, that's what's going on. I could find the suspend logs in /var/log/pm-suspend.log, but not in /var/log/hibernate.log. Thanks.

You can make pm-utils use tuxonice by adding the line below to /etc/pm/config.d/gentoo:

SLEEP_MODULE="tuxonice"
