Why don't you modify his script to unload the psmouse module before
hibernating and load it on resume ?

No idea then. I use KDE solely. KDE's klaptop daemon is quite enough to
handle all my acpi/power related issues. Try it.

What Software Suspend version are you using ? Is it a module or compiled in
into the kernel ?

For me, the Suspend-to-Disk/Suspend-to-RAM part is well handled by
klaptopdaemon but anything should work.

acpi_sleep=s3_bios should work because before using this option I too had
exactly the same problems that you've mentioned. What acpi modes does your
machine support ?

Thanks. I too did fix it the sameway but was too lazy to update it on the
website :-)
