Slack won't go to sleep.

When I try to put slackware to sleep or have it hibernate the system simply sits with a black screen. Normally it would do this for a short period of time immediately before the actual sleep state (screen powered off, croissant light on) is entered, but currently it does it indefinitely. My sleep USED to work just fine, it broke after some unclean shutdown or another, so basically I just want to know what I can try resetting to try to get it back to normal. Thoughts?

Slackware64 13.1, running on thinkpad X61.

EDIT: Of course the second I make the post I think of trying to sleep/hibernate from the command line instead of through X/GDM (Gnome SlackBuild). That works. I think I can fix it easily now.
