Significant part of resume issues goes from hardware drivers. Some of
them just do not have suspend/resume support, and almost always it is
less tested, as soon as less used. It is enough to have single buggy
driver in system to make system not wake up. In some cases unloading
drivers before suspend and reloading them after resume could help.
