Yes, the explanation is correct and is clearly mentioned. Disabling the
"poweroff" button event in acpid's config file helped not let the machine
shutdown but the screen still remained blank.
Using the "acpi_sleep=s3_bios" option made resume work perfect

This option is working for me perfectly. I close my LID and the os suspends
to ram and self resumes once the LID is opened.
