I'll try the "acpi_sleep=s3_bios" I've see suggested in various places.

Resume was "better" for me up until the last kernel or two before FC5T2, 
it did used to power back on and then realize it hadn't re-initialised 
the SATA disks, I presume today's kernel with git11 would fix that if it 
got that far (it panics and flashes the keyboard LEDS as soon as it 
powers back on)
