    Did you give Swap space? The computer will not go into Suspend without Swap Space. Also make sure you have the latest EFI boot code

    did you install laptop-mode-tools?

    apparently when you install laptop-mode-tools it uninstalls pm-utils which is required to suspend I think.

    I followed some instructions here to keep laptop-mode-tools installed and reinstall pm-utils : http://art.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1592424

    True. I removed laptop-mode-tools and reinstalled pm-utils and suspend is working again.
