Suspend doesn't work after hardware upgrade
I had a Slackware64 13.37 desktop system where suspend worked flawlessly. After I did a hardware upgrade (mobo-cpu-ram), and made a clean install, suspend doesn't work, nor within KDE, or via the command 'pm-suspend'.
What do I mean by "desn't work":
In my previous system everything seemed to be turned off, the tower's power led was blinking and when I pressed the power button the machine resumed as expected. After the upgrade, I choose "suspend to RAM", the screen goes off (as expected), but the machine remains on (at least you can hear the cpu fan spinning), the power led remains on, nothing can wake the machine back from sleep, so I have to hard-reset.
I use the same NVIDIA card as before (I read somewhere that often it has something to do with the graphics card), with the same proprietary drivers (the latest). My system is vanilla Slackware (no custom kernels or anything). Switching between huge kernel and generic with initrd doesn't change a thing. Maybe it has something to with RAM? I upgraded from 2GB DDR to 8GB DDR2. Or a kernel issue?

Reason: mobo uses ddr2 not ddr3 ram
