Suspend to disk/ram problem

I'm running suse 10.1 on a toshiba laptop (p4 2.4 ghz, 512 ram, nvidia 420go, centrino wifi card) and I'm trying to get suspend to work.

Right now it kinda works. After following the Nvidia suspend howto from, suspend to disk/ram will work, but only once. After that, I need to reboot before suspending again. If I try to make it suspend twice, it will crash before ever shutting off (no blank screen error, I wind up in a terminal with a screen full of how it crashed).

Now, I've googled this for days on end, and turned up little. So, does anyone out there have any idea how to solve this problem?

This might not be the exact soln but did you try suspend2? -
I have found it to be more stable with proprietary drivers. it is fast and nice interface. You have to recompile your kernel for that. Check out suspend2 wiki

- it is quite easy with SUSE.

kernel compile info
