"the server starts" meaning what?  The X server?  Or are you saying
sometimes video is messed up when you power on the machine, regardless
of hibernate?

I wouldn't expect this to make any difference at all -- we're already
switching VTs to an unalocated one before suspend (or hibernate), and
switching back after resume.

Are you using intelfb, or just the normal text mode?
