I'm not entirely convinced it's suspend/resume related any more, but
there's still a problem.  When I got your email, my system had been up
for awhile (running Linus' 964fe080d94db82a3268443e9b9ece4c60246414
(approximately 2.6.32-rc5) plus drm-intel/for-linus from a couple days
ago for the watermark fix)), suspended and resumed several times, and
logged in and out several times.  I turned off wireless and power
consumption was 9.0 watts.

I switched to console and killed X.  Power consumption still 9.0
watts.  The system was almost completely idle.

I rebound i915.  Power consumption dropped to 7.3 watts.

I restarted X and logged back in.  System froze hard (whoops).

It looks like something is getting the chip stuck in a high-power state.
