[Pm-utils] Fwd: Suddenly lost the ability to suspend

Hi.  Sorry it took me so long to respond.  Here's additional information.

The version of pm-utils is: 0.99.2-3ubuntu10

Graphics hardware is Intel GM965/GL960.

pm-suspend --quirk-none does the same thing as anything else:  switch to 
vc63, and that's it.

Nothing is left in dmesg or the syslog.

The kernel I'm currently running is:
Linux drawesome 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP Tue Feb 12 02:46:46 UTC 2008 
x86_64 GNU/Linux

Just for fun, here's all the modules I've also attached the output of 

Also, remember:  This suddenly stopped working, although I'm not sure what 
the change was.  I don't remember anything specific.  I certainly didn't 
change kernels or anything.
