OK. That is weird - it worked for me last time. One thing at at time then -
try doing this from text-mode, so no graphic mode involved. For that you might
need to disable your i915 driver altogether. Then just run 'pm-suspend' and
see where it stops.

The next part is... Wait a minute, this reminds me of something I encountered
with a SandyBrige i2100 - the suspend would work, but resume would get stuck.

The issue was with the hypervisor and if I had the acpi-cpufreq drivers loaded
it resumed just fine. If I didn't - so hypervisor had no idea about C states or
P states, it would be stuck in the default_idle and never come back.

So you might want for fun try also using the stable/processor-passthru.v5 and

But the other issue could be with your ExpressCard. I don't know if you are 
the serial console output on it, but there might be a bug in the hypervisor 
it ends up looping forver if you are using a serial console). So try _not_ using
it and seeing what happens.

Try those things. Then start ramping up the debug options to get an idea of what
is not working. Also, flash your BIOS just in case.
