All of a sudden my SUSPEND feature has quit working after the pc has been up

christopher at COMPAQ:~$ uptime
  19:54:50 up 2 days, 10:51,  2 users,  load average: 0.05, 0.06, 0.05
christopher at COMPAQ:~$

When clicking on the LUBUNTU menu



the screen goes black for a min then comes back to the LOG OUT dialog 
menu at the very bottom it says TIMEOUT REACHED.

But yesterday it worked fine.. I would click suspend, screen would go 
black for a min, then pc would turn off ( go to sleep )

when logging out of lubuntu going to the top right and clicking suspend 
the log in screen freezes for a min blinks and then the log in dialog 
box like blinks and then the cursor starts blinking again but during 
that time the cursor will not blink on the user chooser box where you 
input your password it just goes | and after a min the screen blinks and 
then the cursor goes back to blinking to where you can put in your 
password again.

when doing SUDO PM-SUSPEND though terminal it asks for my password then 
just goes back to

christopher at COMPAQ:~$ sudo pm-suspend
[sudo] password for christopher:
christopher at COMPAQ:~$

also if you log off the session and go back to the log in screen and try 
to do CTRL ALT f1 f2 my monitor pops up and says its going into standby 
but as soon as I hit CTRL ALT F8 it wakes up so I cant drop down to a 
prompt for some reason logged into LU or on the log in screen
