when i read my thinkpad's documentation it described three suspend modes.
suspend, hibernate and save to disk. to be honest i'm not sure what the
difference between suspend and hibernate is (they appear to work the same
when you hit the function keys to invoke that mode).

lucky you :) my 755cx works just fine om all modes, but my 390 only works
with save to disk.

that can work (sometimes, it depends if the graphics is just fried or if the
resolution has changed as well), and also just restarting the window manager
often fixes it. but it's still ugly and a pain.
