Unfortunately no.  For example even after working the problem very
hard for a significant time I never got the stock in-kernel swsusp to
function on my HP nc4000 or my older machine before it.  From my
perspective the default in kernel suspend only works on some
architectures and often not the one I have in my hand.  It has worked
on my ThinkPads though.  Suspend2 by Nigel Cunningham has worked
perfectly on a range of systems.  It isn't in the kernel because the
in kernel suspend is maintained by someone who has consistently
blocked it.  This has been the source of long running controversy.  If
you search the web email archives for suspend2 vs swsusp you will find
thousands of postings and arguments about it.

Personally I think you have been lucky!
