I'm experiencing the same problems with my X31,
after suspend the screen blanks, and actually turns off the backlight but
only for a few seconds, then the backlight turns on again... even when the
lid is closed....
And for the hibernation thing, i don't believe that you can make it work,
it seems that the newer thinkpads, don't have bios assisted S4 state,
(hw.acpi.s4bios). That in my understanding means that the machine relies on
the host operating system to do the hibernation. And as far as i know, this
works only under Windows XP.
