The proof of the pudding within suspend/resume is the resume !

On my ATI based HP nx9000, suspend shuts down the machine (by default on 
lid close). Opening lid causes the power to turn on + fan, but no 
vision, nor does it appear to access the hard disk.

Would you be able to test if the suspend / resume process works properly 
using the nv open driver ? You'll probably get more help here if you are 
using the open driver (for now) !

Do you get hard disk activity ?
Is the network card lights on ?
Can you ssh / ping the machine from another after the attempted resume ?
