Well, at least you know it isn't the battery.

I am curious.  On my ThinkPad T42 when suspend-to-ram is active there
is a little "moon" led lit to indicate that power is being used to
keep the ram alive.  When illuminated it shows the machine as
sleeping, drawing power, and not hibernated.  Does your not have such
an indicator?

Unfortunately it is not uncommon on laptops to find that one method or
the other is not functional.  Or worse that neither works.

If you haven't yet then browsing the wonderful thinkwiki.org site may
turn up some hints as to your problem.
