I got a help message from Alexander Clouter. As he suggested I added a
in XF86Config. I am not sure whether it works or not since I
haven't tried suspend mode again. And I will avoid suspending
before you try it. :)

This is probably do to some of the X server acceleration functions being
activated that then play havac with your machine due to X not knowing
about suspend and hibernate.
Add to you XF86Config file under the graphics card section
and see what that does. There are quite a few acceleration options
avaliable for the trident cards (see trident.txt or something
similar) that you can play with to try and get more speed or
compatibility from X. However usually these can be direct trade-offs and
only a trial and error approach method can find whats good and whats not.
