It appears that my problem was caused by the 'ACPI suspend type' not 
being set correctly in the bios. I just recently reinstalled Arch to my 
system and in the process of doing so my bios CMOS was cleared. When 
this happened it dumped the setting for the suspend type to SI (POS). 
After changing this setting to S3(STR) I am now able to suspend.

Thanks for the suggestions.
