I am having the same problem on my Fujitsu T900, 64-bit ArchLinux. Tried
both pm-suspend and s2ram, and while s2ram *appeared* to not cause this
problem as much, it still happened. At first I thought my screen was entirely
blank, but on closer inspection realized my screen was simply very dim--flashing
a flashlight at the screen helped a lot. Was able to navigate to my brightness
settings, and the brightness was on max, as it was before suspend. I have the
testing repo enabled, and everything is up-to-date. I don't know if this problem
occurred with older kernel versions on the Fujitsu, as this is a recent install.
