Default Suspend/Resume Problems

I have downloaded the latest nvidia driver, installed it without problems, updated my XF86Config file, etc. I'm running Red Hat 9.0, using the latest updated kernel supplied by RedHat -- Linux version 2.4.20-20.9. I'm using a Dell Latitude computer with a GeForce 4 video card.

The problem that I'm having is that when I try to resume from sleep after suspending my laptop, all that comes back to me is a blank screen. The hard drive starts up, the fan kicks in, etc., but no X. The only option left to me is a hard reboot (unless I "happen" to have my cursor in a terminal window and I can blindly type "sudo init 6" and my password to reboot gracefully). This means that everything is restored properly except X. Killing X with Ctrl-Backspace doesn't do anything to help either.

I've noticed that I can suspend and resume properly if X isn't running when I first suspend the laptop...anyone know what the problem is?

I've tried looking for this in the forums, but couldn't find a subject about this.

Thanks ahead of time!
