Personally I don't have this problem and I cannot confirm this bug.
But you have to know that on average, over 1,000 bugs are filed every week
in launchpad. Don't expect a developer or a triager to involve with
the bug immediately.
Be patient and provide as much information you can.
I didn't see an "apport-bug" in tags. Run in terminal

ubuntu-bug PACKAGENAME

could help to gather debugging information that will help to resolve
this issue.

I'm not sure if this bug is related to Intel graphics or ACPI or some
other function, because you said that when you suspend from the menu
you have no problems at all. The problem only occurs when you close
the lid.
