Thanks for the reply, but there is no such program or manual page on my box.

if this fixes the problem then its probably something with the frame buffer driver you selected during your custom compile of the kernel. If so try just plain vesa that one seams to work the best anywhooo. (This will require you to recompile the kernel )
If that does not solve the issue then its probably something with the video card coming out of suspend mode but I doubt this as X is able to suspend the video just fine. That or the devs for the video driver that your using in x are using some sort of trickery to get suspend to work correctly on the card <-- this is possible.
I really doubt that using plain vesa wont solve the issue as its probably the frame buffer driver not supporting acpi correctly.
I tried your suggestions, booting into normal vga mode, and using the plain vesa driver (I was doing that anyways
). VGA mode failed, as did the vesa fb driver. I have a radeon xpress 1100 IGP card, and the only thing that I could think that would help would be to compile the radeonfb driver into the kernel/module, but the odd thing is that the driver doesn't seem to connect with the card, which is really
odd since it is a RADEON card! AUGH! This is infuriating to levels beyond comprehension.
Did find something out though. The fglrx module (not the X driver, the module) would mess my suspend/resume process up. ATI needs to get their act together, I think.
I am going to try one more thing, which is to compile agpgart into the kernel which might have been the problem. We'll see though. Thanks for all the help guys, I appreciate it.
