Mmmmfph! - I don't deny possible....
What do standards (like ACPI) and Microsoft have to do with each other??

If ACPI is broken you'll see messages in dmesg.

Cheers - now I know we can debug, once we resolve the call for the
location of the wpa_supplicant control interface problem. May be that is
the only problem. (I've done a bit more reading on that fail line in the
suspend log - it comes from hibernate calling wpa_supplicant)
ie. hibernate asks "what is state of wifi up"? doesn't get answer in
expected place, or doesn't know expected place. Once it has an answer it
"should", note to resume state after hibernation, proceed to hibernate

Thanks for that
Do you have a /var/log/wpa_action.log??
If so please post

man wpa_supplicant.conf
