Was the message one which follows?

  No swap partition found; userspace software suspend will not work

  Currently userspace software suspend can write only to a swap
  partition.  Your system doesn't seem to have such a partition. Please
  make one, preferably with twice the size of your physical ram. Then
  run dpkg-reconfigure or setup the configuration file yourself.

In this case, you have been bitten by #427104 [1], which is a bug in the
uswsusp package.  This bug is going to be fixed in the next Etch point
