Its not just nvidia's cards with this problem, but most video cards

Video issues with S3 resume
2003-2005, Pavel Machek

During S3 resume, hardware needs to be reinitialized. For most
devices, this is easy, and kernel driver knows how to do
it. Unfortunately there's one exception: video card. Those are usually
initialized by BIOS, and kernel does not have enough information to
boot video card. (Kernel usually does not even contain video card
driver -- vesafb and vgacon are widely used).
there are some possible tricks/workarounds listed, good luck
