I'm using the follow:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV41.8 [GeForce Go
6800] (rev a2)

Of course, I realized that after complaining about this I was just going
to get shot down since I'm using the nvidia driver.

Sadly, the nv driver doesn't resume, so the virtual-consoles aren't the
only things that remains blank on resume. ;-]

Hopefully enough others have seen this (using non-proprietary drivers)
that someone will take notice.  It sure makes debugging and fixing
things hard with X stops responding and you can't see a virt-console.

Arghhh.
