I have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Series, the latest ATI/AMD drivers, and Gnome-Shell. Suspend works for me only if I'm not runnning Wine or Qt application. It takes like 3 minutes sometimes, but works.

So the suspend bug is still there ...

In my case with my ASUS 1015B Netbook which has the hybrid AMD C50 CPU which has integrated ATI6350 graphics, suspend doesn't work even with C6 turned off in BIOS, I have to take the battery out to revive the system.

Hold on power button for times to shutdown the system. It works for me. (Acer laptop with AMD 6320HD graphics) – shantanu Feb 27 '12 at 4:25
