I am having a similar problem with a desktop machine. I resolved the problem by appending resume=/dev/hda5 to the kernel boot line in 


Your swap partition may not be /dev/hda5. Change it to whatever your swap partition is. You can find out by looking in /etc/fstab.

The entry appears to be missing on both a clean install and on installing a new kernel.

I suppose this is a problem with the kernel package for omitting this boot line entry.
