Then it's definitely not suspending completely. Something is stopping
the suspend. Check the logs, especially /var/log/acpid for errors. If
nothing presents itself. Then you might want to try logging out of X,
and stopping gdm so that X isn't running, and try suspending then. See
if that works. If it does, then you know it's something to do with the X
display. You can also remove modules one at a time, and see if that
helps to narrow it down. But check the logs for useful info first.
