    Cannot suspend or hibernate Asus N61J Laptop

    Recently got a new laptop for work, an Asus N61J, and I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on it. For whatever reason, the laptop will not suspend. I have no idea why, as it looks like it is going to, but ultimately dumps me back at the Unlock screen, as though I had just locked the computer, rather than suspending it.

    However, it does kick me off my wireless network, so I think it *does* suspend, but only for a second or so.

    Looking at /var/log/pm-suspend.log, I see

    Code:
    Initial commandline parameters:

    The two important lines seem to be

    Code:
    Fri Apr  2 12:25:47 NZDT 2010: performing suspend

    Which indicates that yes, it did suspend - for 6 seconds. Which isn't terribly useful.

    Does anyone have any ideas on what's going wrong, and how can I fix it?

    Is it possible the laptop is just a little too new, and is missing some hardware drivers or something?

    For what its worth, I'm using the Proprietary ATi Drivers, but otherwise have a fairly clean install of Ubuntu 9.10.

    EDIT: I'm running the 64bit Version of Ubuntu.
