I have problems with suspend too on a Dell inspiron. Sometimes after
resuming the keyboard wont work. The solution for me was this (hope it
helps someone):

As root, create the following files:



# Rebind the AT keyboard interface.
if [ -f /sys/bus/platform/drivers/i8042/bind ]; then
echo -n "i8042" > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/i8042/bind



# Unbind the AT keyboard interface.
if [ -f /sys/bus/platform/drivers/i8042/unbind ]; then
echo -n "i8042" > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/i8042/unbind

Set them as executable and you're good to go.
