X is currently entirely unaware of suspend/resume as such. Your options 
are to move your input driver to the kernel, have a separate userspace 
application that's run around suspend/resume or alternatively to perform 
the suspend/resume calls when the OS switches away or to X's virtual 

As KMS gets to the point where we don't need to switch way from X at 
all, this will probably get easier to deal with.
