I'm having similar problems to those being related here. Suspending in mi Dell 
Inspiron 1501 worked but then a month ago or so.. it stopped working. I got a 
blank screen, and the leds didn't blink when resuming as they did before. I 
also found that s2ram -f worked, but I haven't been able to configure 
kde-guidance-amanger to use s2ram (can someone give me a quick guide of how 
to do it?). Oh, and I have also the mouse problem, but you don't need to 
reestart X, just unplug it and re-plug it and it will work again (at least if 
it's USB).
