BIOS is up to date. I flashed it a couple of months ago with no visible changes.
I'm using intel driver. with i810 I get the same results (but it used to work better with suspend to ram a few months ago when I was running ubuntu). As I said before with "vesa" driver suspend to ram work flawlessly. So the problem must be related to the video driver.

I'd like to know if I could take advantage of such routines in some way.

I know nothing about that modes. Could you point me to some docs?
