  Resuming from suspend results in black screen

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This problem occurs with the most current snapshot of Hoary (kernel
  2.6.24-14).  The machine is a Shuttle SN95G5 nforce3 chipset with an
  Athlon64 X2 processor.  The video card is an Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT.
  This is a desktop machine with a wired LAN connection.

  I can suspend to RAM and it appear to finish properly.  However, when
  I then try to resume, I get the same result.  The screen stays black
  and X never displays.  The machine is not entirely dead, though,
  because the HDD light blinks every 5-10 seconds.  Also, if I press
  CTRL+ALT+DELETE, I get a flurry of disk activity and then it goes back
  to the 5-10 second blinking.  Fortunately, I can use the Magic SysRq
  key combos to sync, unmount, and reboot the machine.  The network is
  not active during this and I cannot SSH into the machine or even ping

  These results occur using the binary Nvidia driver.  I did try using
  the nv driver as well, but it was a couple weeks ago and so it isn't
  quite a fair comparison.  In that case, resuming from a suspend did
  actually hang the machine requiring a manual reset.  I was able to
  successfully resume the machine with the nv driver, however.

  I really hope I can get this issue resolved as it is one of the only
  features not working with the latest Ubuntu on my system.  I have not
  specified a package for this bug as I'm not sure if it should go
  against the kernel, the Nvidia driver, pm-utils, or something else.
