Try doing 

xset dpms force suspend

and then move the mouse or hit a key to see if the display comes back 
properly. My laptop gives a blank white screen on resume from hibernate and 
the above helps. Since you're using fluxbox, it may be easier to set up a 
shortcut for this command before you do the hibernate. That will ease your job 
instead of having to type the command correctly in a messed up display.
