Well, X _shouldn't_ restart, so either it's failing on either suspend or
restart. or you actually have something configured that says to
stop/restart KDM on suspend. Probably not the latter, or I'd expect the
resolution to be the same.  Check /var/log/kdm.log and /var/log/Xorg.*.log
for errors - likely related to the mouse.  It may be as simple as having
the mouse module removed & reinserted on suspend/resume
