An update: tried the script, and no it did not solve suspend to disk issues.
After a bit of searching on Google, I am pretty much sure that it is
the nvidia driver that is causing problems (and not insufficient
swap).  None of the workarounds Google turned up seem to work for me,
Anyways, I've subscribed to the linux-thinkpad mailing list and posted
my questions there.

Thanks for the responses,
