I have a similar problem with my laptop - hibernate works fine, but
resuming leaves me with a blank screen. I can press the power button
and the system will shut down cleanly. I have an nvidia card, but I've
stopped X and unloaded all modules. Did you get anywhere?

Testing from console, no frame buffer, any of the actions (hibernate, hibernate-ram) bring the system down just fine, but when I power the system back up fully, I have no video signal. The system is fine otherwise, as I can blind-type "reboot" or "halt" and the system does so.



Have you tried using vbetool after resuming?
