Ubuntu 8.10 ( Intrepid Ibex ) and Suspend/Resume on the Thinkpad T60p ( 2007-AE7 )
However, I think I've cracked it - I went back in time in my blog and found this post from September, where I'd fickered with /etc/default/acpi-support and changed: -
If it helps, I'm using the fglrx 8.54.3 driver which I got via apt-get install fglrx* - as far as I know, this is not a proprietary driver BUT I MAY BE WRONG.
If it helps, this is how I can see what driver I'm using: -
lsmod | grep -i fglrx
fglrx 1813960 32
agpgart 42184 2 fglrx,intel_agp
dmesg | grep -i fglrx

Having got fglrx installed and having hacked acpi-support, I can now suspend and resume.
I can also switch to a single or dual display ( using my Sharp Aquos 26" LCD display ) using the ATI Catalyst Control Centre ( command is amdccle ) to switch between screens.
