Have you fiddled around with the vbetool options? You may need to run it 
after resume. There is a list/db of what actions to take as part of the 
hal package on other distros, e.g. my Dell has it's tweaks, ifs and buts in:
which is part of the hal-info package.

I use power_management.quirk.vbe_post but you can also try 
power_management.quirk.vbemode_restore (as our h/w is totally different!)

You can try these options via the command line as root, but I forget 
how, but it will be via hal-set-property.

Also you should confirm that it is purely a display problem by SSH'ing 
in from another machine on the network to make sure it is doing stuff 
properly. If you can't do that you can try a "sleep 3m; mplayer 
/some/music/file.mp3" before you suspend and see if you can hear it when 
you resume ;)
