I found a proprietary solution (although i wished it were opensource - the opensource solution is available(default) but not quite there yet :)). I used Ubuntu 13.04, the default video driver was nouveau. Thanks to @pratnala, i found the NVIDIA proprietary driver in Additional Drivers labeled NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library from nvidia-310(proprietary, tested). I am now able to Suspend and Hibernate. I hope this helps somebody. –  e-zy mann Apr 30 '13 at 9:28
It's only a matter of time before the nouveau team releases a fix for this. I have the same problem - this bug must have slipped in only recently. –  Martin Konecny May 6 '13 at 14:32
