to fix suspend\resume problems you must edit your grub configuration:
options snd-hda-intel model=dell
find line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" and replace it with:
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_backlight=vendor acpi_skip_timer_override"
and reboot your laptop.
