I have a gf 4 on an i8xxx and kernel 2.6 with acpi enabled, and have never been able to either suspend or hibernate. In fact it suspends or shuts down fine, but when waking up the screen is never turned on. The system is working because I can shutdown cleanly by pressing the power button or typing a shutdown command, but without the screen there's not much you can do.

I hope someone that has been more lucky can post his/her configuration and system so that other users can get this important piece of funcionality working.

I got suspend to memory working on my 8600 though once in a while it will still fail. The site I worked off seems to have gone awol so here's my page.

I think the key was the agp part.
