Are you in X when you suspend?  For some configurations the video card
(or video bios) doesn't behave too well wrt suspending.  To eliminate
this, try switching to a text-mode virtual terminal first: If
suspend/resuem works there, then X is your problem.

Besides, by switching to vt1, then you might catch a glimpse of any log
messages that could help
