What kind of graphics card does the computer have? Have you installed "Additional Drivers" for the graphics card? Please update your questions with details. – user68186 Sep 26 '12 at 17:26

Same issue here but with 13.10 64bit, however the problem for me was the Nouveau display driver.

I am using Nvidia, and moved to a proprietary Nvidia driver, rebooted and suspend now works fine.

So I would suggest checking what driver you are using and changing to the proprietary driver available for your system.
