System fails to resume from suspend ONLY when suspended by closing lid

Bug Description

This is an odd one... When I close the lid, the system successfully suspends. However, when I open the lid, the system starts to resume, the screen flashes then turns off completely again (no backlight) and the system freezes (capslock doesnt illumintate when pressed repeatedly).

HOWEVER, if I enter suspend via the menu and wake by hitting a key, or even suspend via menu and wake by closing and opening the lid the system seems to properly resume functionality.

So to repeat, this only seems to happen when I close the lid to suspend.

Unfortunately, that's a blocker for me because I'd imagine that 99% of the use cases for suspending a laptop include just closing the lid and throwing it in a bag.

Looks like this is radeon driver issue. Could you install fglrx and try again?
