Bug Description

I have a Lenovo G570 laptop (Intel Sandy Bridge graphics). If I suspend via the user interface, then resume by pressing the power button, everything works. However, when closing the lid to suspend, I observe the following sequence:

1. Close lid, wait a few seconds for suspend.
2. Open lid. Laptop starts up, light-locker screen is visible.
3. Type password into light-locker, hit enter.
4. Screen goes blank. It is totally black i.e. it seems that the backlight is off.

Moving the mouse, pressing keys or trying to change the brightness with the keyboard shortcut does not bring back the display. I can get a console by C-A-F1 and then restart lightdm to get a working display again.
