You have to find the power management settings (somewhere in your menus).

For suspend to RAM*, you need your SWAP partition equal to the RAM size.

Also, I was having issues with recovery from suspend--in my case it was solved with an update to the official NVidia driver.

*"hibernate" means "suspend to disk"
