Not what I meant. I was talking about when I close my lid and my machine crashes and only can be revived back to life by killing the power.

Do you have an ATI chipset with fglrx enabled, by any chance? There is a bug with kernel 2.6.22 and the proprietary ATI driver that prevents suspend from working.

There are three things you can do:

1) Make it so that closing the lid *doesn't* suspend the laptop (System --> Preferences --> Power Manager or something like that, my Ubuntu's in French...); pick another option, like turning off the screen or powering down the computer.

2) Not use the proprietary ATI driver. Of course, this means you won't be able to use desktop effects and 3D apps.

3) Install kernel 2.6.20 and use that one instead (that's what I did). You do need to tweak /etc/default/acpi-support a bit, though, i.e. make sure the following options are set:

SAVE_VBE_STATE=false
POST_VIDEO=true
USE_DPMS=false

Good luck!
