Yes, in fact you already said in your OP that suspend works from the
menu, so obviously the problem's not with the driver.
I had this same problem years ago and there was an easy fix. It was so
long ago and the solution came to me so quickly, that today I can't
remember exactly what I did. Generally though, I used some utility or
application which binds a key to an action. To designate the key, I
just had to press that key. (In linux, everything on the keyboard is a
key, even the little stem that normally would hit the switch and invoke
suspend. It's a key in the same way that 'a' and '$' are keys.) So
after designating the key-- by pressing it-- I entered the command for
suspend (which I had to search down).
Try looking at Foot -> System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts (in
Gnome). There's a "Sleep" item there that maybe can be configured to
fix the problem.

C6: Suspend on laptop close doesn't work
When I was trying out the RHEL6 beta I saw this problem on a
recent model top line Thinkpad T series. (A T500? It's not in
front of me right now.) That machine is now
running RHEL6.1 and hibernation is fine, evidenced by the fact
that two days ago I unplugged it after forgetting to shut it
down and it recovered just fine.
I don't recall if the fixed kernel was part of the initial
RHEL6.0 or not, but you might find that as the CentOS updates
catch up the problem may go away.
[And with respect to the 'Effecting CentOS change' thread, yes
having an early RHEL test system with a license and submitting a
bug report works wonders. I was motivated by wanting CentOS to
work on my new laptop ...]
