I think this is a problem with laptop compatibility and linux. I have never gotten it to work on mine, but I do know that you need to have ACPI enabled for the kernel, or just have it boot up with the ACPI option in LILO or Grub. Sorry that I can't say more; I wish I could.

I can hibernate mine, but only in textmode, because currently all vendor drivers don't support hibernate under linux.
you have to exit X and unload i.e. the nvidia drivers.
then you can suspend using
echo "disk" >/sys/power/state
or
echo "4" >/proc/acpi/sleep

this can be triggered using the lid switch with the acpid daemon
(config in /etc/acpid/...)
