Thanks for your response. The fact it happens also in KDE appears  
interesting... so the root cause might exist in a component on top of  
pure X which is shared by Gnome and KDE. I will definitely do more  
investigation on this at the weekend.

Hopefully some time suspend/resume will also work on the newer Lenovo  
models (I would be curious if the wakeup problem is Intel/KMS only or  
if also the NVidia models e.g. T430 NVS are affected).

Kind regards,
