I have a Dell Latitude X300, and was experiencing a similar problem. I 
just tried the suggested fix, and it did get me alot closer. I was able to 
resume my laptop from suspense, but the screen went garbled. After some 
googling, I tried increasing hw.acpi.sleep_delay, and found a value of 3 
to be the magic that was missing.

Now, I just have one more problem:

When closing the lid on my laptop, while in X, and opening it again, the 
~50 topmost pixels are garbled and the entire view is shifted down. 
Switching to console and back seem to fix it. Any takes?
