Using the default settings, the graphics is not initialized correctly as it was before I applied the following patch to hal-info which unfortunately has not yet be answered to on the HAL list or been committed [1–4].

ADD_PARAMETERS is the correct way, I'd say. but it has to be in
/etc/pm/config.d/, *not* sleep.d

Something like this works for me:

echo 'ADD_PARAMETERS="--quirk-s3-bio"' > /etc/pm/config.d/custom-quirks
sudo pm-suspend


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
