suspend/resume problems jessie/Xfce

I have a system that is configured for dual-boot: Wheezy and Jessie,
with a shared /home.  The Jessie partition was just installed today.

I can't get the system to resume properly on Jessie.  There are 2

1. When resuming from suspend, the display fails to go out of sleep mode
until I press Ctrl-Alt-Fn to go to a different virtual terminal.  But
then when I return the vt7, the display flickers and there are
horizontal lines running through it.  I don't see this problem when

Jessie, I don't see a way to get the systray icon, so AFAICT the only
way to suspend is via the logout dialog.  (There's a power manager panel

I'm looking for suggestions on what to do next.
