Sony VAIO VGN-FW275J doesn't resume from suspend

Bug Description

Everything works quite well, including suspend. But the computer simply rebooted, instead of resuming from suspend. I never use suspend, so It is working fine for my daily needs. I use the kernel full time daily without any major usability issues, save for this small issue that normally wouldn't effect me.

WORKAROUND: Edit the /etc/default/grub file:
    gksu gedit /etc/default/grub

    Look up the line where it says:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

    and change it to:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_sleep=nonvs"

    Save and close the gedit file. Update the GRUB menu:
    sudo update-grub

    Reboot and enjoy!

looking through other launchpad accounts it seems rather common for Sony Vaio laptops not to resume

The fix provided in this link solved my problem:

    You just have to edit the /etc/default/grub file:

    gksu gedit /etc/default/grub

    Look up the line where it says:

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

    and change it to:

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_sleep=nonvs"

    Save the file and close gedit.

    Update the GRUB menu:

    sudo update-grub

    Reboot and enjoy!

Is the workaround...

Hi, normally I report bugs with ubuntu-bug *packagename* however I didn't know what package the suspend feature was included in. I guess in hindsight the kernel is the only logical answer, though admittedly I am no kernel programmer. I hope the posted info helps.

I am not going to install Windows Vista on any machine ever, so this bug will remain at an impass.
The only BIOS update available is for Windows Vista. Using a bootable Winows PE cd does not allow me to run the BIOS update utility...
I will continue to use the hacky workaround instead.
