I had a similar (?) problem on my Inspiron 3700: After resuming the
screen went blank (probably not the same problem as yours, I admit).

I found that adding
    Option "NoPM"
in the "ServerFlags" section of XF86Config-4 sorted that out.

There is a few more options in there that may (not) have a bearing on
your problem - man XF86Config and look for serverflags

Hope this helps
