My computer is a 64 bit desktop running 12.10. Since upgrading it will not suspend. In my power settings I have it set for suspend after five minutes.

do you mean you are unable to shutdown your computer? – VRU Jan 12 '13 at 8:40
No, I mean suspend. – Joseph28 Jan 12 '13 at 16:19

I changed the time from 5 minutes to "do not suspend" then changed it back. Now it works.
