Can you try various kernel boot options from Documentation/power/video.txt
And also try the vberestore X workaround in bug #3177. With that suspend-
resume should work while X is running.
Video restore on resume from S3 is a BIOS or video driver issue,
not an ACPI issue. Moving to drivers/video.
Please reopen this bug if:
- it is still present in kernel 2.6.17 and
- you can provide the requested information.
