Suspend not working on Dell D630

Bug Description

On Ubuntu 9.04 (upgraded from 8.10) my Dell D630 doesn't enter suspend mode - it returns immediately back to the Password Dialog.

Maybe because of the intel on board graphic because syslog shows following error:
Apr 24 16:26:25 mmtux kernel: [ 939.571316] [drm:i915_get_vblank_counter] *ERROR* trying to get vblank count for disabled pipe 0

Also having this problem on Acer Aspire One A150 upgraded from 8.10. When requesting suspend or hibernate, the screen dims as if entering that mode then immediately comes back with the password dialog.

Syslog shows "[ 1244.326232] [drm:i915_getparam] *ERROR* Unknown parameter 6"?

Attached the output of:
/usr/share/gnome-power-manager/gnome-power-bugreport &> gpm.log

Found it!
After executing "sudo pm-suspend" the logfile in /var/log/pm-suspend.log showed, that a a script in /etc/pm/sleep.d/ causes an error when trying to suspend. (I used this on 8.10 to rescan usb when resuming docked, but the script doesn't have a rule for suspend - which is obviously needed on 9.04)

Thanks for help!

Thanks for that! Found the problem in the same log. In 8.10 a script was required to bring the wireless connection back up when coming out of suspend on the Acer Aspire One, this script (/etc/pm/sleep.d/00wireless) was causing an error on resume with 9.04. I've taken the script out and suspend/resume now appears to be working just fine, complete with wireless connection.
