Do not put your swap space in an LVM group. It's ok to place it in an extended partition, but software suspend (swsusp) will not work if you do this. I moved my swap out of my LVM group and created a new swap partition. Everything works great now. If you did what I did and decide to move your swap to get suspend-to-disk to work, then don't forget to modify your boot settings. You'll have pass the write resume setting to the kernel at boot. Add:
resume=/dev/<your swap here>
For instance, mine was resume=/dev/hd5. If you use Grub, look at your /boot/grub/menu.1st file and you'll see what I mean. Hope this helps anyone else who may have experienced this problem.
