I did these tests with amd64-generic 2.6.15-5.7 and the latest
acpi-support, usplash, etc. packages. STD worked perfectly in Breezy
for me. In current dapper, it works as well (in both cases), the only
regression is that I do not see the text mode screen with the two
progress bars on suspend any more. They were useful to see that the
computer was still 'doing' something; now the screen just goes black
and the computer powers off after a while.

When I activate vga=769 (b), the only visible difference in the whole
boot/suspend/resume/shutdown process is that the usplash image has
wrong colors (cyan for the Ubuntu word, blue/red for the slider, green
for 'ok'). I have the same boring 80x25 text mode virtual consoles
like before.
