Not sure if this will help, but you can try. I have a Lenovo T60 with
some ATI graphics card and the standard radeon driver. Suspend only
works if the system is booted with a nomodeset option. I don't quite
recall what went wrong when trying suspend on a modesetting kernel,
but it never worked.

BTW, as far as I remember, when suspended, the machine only wakes up
when the laptop lid is opened - pressing keys does not wake it up.

HTH,
