Issue is quite the same like here, I've tried everything I found and nothing happens. If I use uswsusp, suspending works good, but graphics doesn't wake up, when I want to hibernate system, it tells me "Looking for splash system... none s2disk:snapshotting system" and nothing happens.

I'm using ATI drivers, i've tried to disable kms, unload usb3 and network drivers, still nothing. Please help me, I don't want to come back to Windows after my 2-year-relationship with Linux. I can share all files I have with you, just help me.

I justed tested the Alpha of 11.04, and suspend/resume is working perfectly :) now just need to wait for the official release so everything is nice and stable.

specifically, kernel 2.6.38 resolves this issue, so any linux distro using this kernel will have working suspend/resume (just tested with Arch linux, works great there too) – Jason Miesionczek Mar 25 '11 at 15:27

You can update your kernel here and it will fix your problem.

I installed 2.6.36 months ago and my similar problems for an acer have been fixed. I can't vouch for 2.6.37 or 2.6.38 but I expect they would work as well.

Good luck.
