That's very strange, as the conventional wisdom is that the suspend
issues are nVidia related.

If you don't mind my quizzing you a bit...

- Are you suspending to RAM or hibernating to disk?  If you're using
GNOME, what options do you see if you left-click the battery/AC icon?
How are you actually suspending?

- What driver for the video card?

Brightness control works for me with the vesa driver and the latest
nVidia binary driver (169.04 or later), but not earlier ones.

The nv driver doesn't work at all, but there is an update in the queue
that should work.

- What kernel, and what is the exact model number of your T61?  Could
you post or send me the results of lsmod, lshal, and lspci -v ?  Could
you check the BIOS version?
