AFAIK pm has its own scripts (try pm-suspend from the terminal).
I also found this:
"On some laptops the mouse will hang after an otherwise successful
suspend. One way to remedy this is to force a reinit of the PS/2 driver
(here i8042) through a hook in /etc/pm/hooks"

echo -n "i8042" > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/i8042/unbind
echo -n "i8042" > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/i8042/bind

I tried it but it didn't work for me so I'm gonna reinstall Gutsy and hope that this bug would be solved by 8.10.
BTW I tried placing the scripts in /etc/pm/hooks, power.d, sleep.d and even hooks.d and keyboard still fails to resume sometimes.
