In my case, I don't see ttyv0 appear before suspend - neither from within
X nor from another tty. But when suspending from another tty, I see ttyv0
briefly after resume before it switches back to the one I started acpiconf
from, so I guess the automatic switching works at least between ttys.

When starting acpiconf from within X, I hear three beeps at intervals of
about one second before the system suspends. As I wrote before, when the
system resumes the screen turns on but remains black, the keyboard doesn't
seem to do anything and I can only press the power button again to shut
the system down completely. There have been cases where I've seen the
console right before its powered down with lots of messages like this one
(typed from memory):

info: [drm] wait idle failed status

When I do that, the only difference I've noticed is that I don't hear the
three beeps mentioned above.

Can anyone tell me if there have been changes to the ACPI code in 8-STABLE
since 8.1-RELEASE that might influence the suspend/resume behaviour in
this case? (There has been an MFC recently, but I have no idea if that
might change anything for me - cc'd jkim because he seems to know much
about this stuff.)
