Hi David,

I too have the same problem.  The suspend part of the process works 
fine, however the resume fails.  It powers up and then the fan start at 
high speed and the network lights come on.  I'm unable to ping and 
therefore ssh the machine.

The machine does not respond to pressing the power button to initiate 
the acpid event button/power.* (in /etc/acpi/events/sample.conf).

It's the video which remains blank.  I have modified the video driver 
and received the same problem with the nv open driver.
