Live USB Ubuntu (screen?) fails to restart after suspend
I have a laptop that I can't install a hard drive in - a connector is broken of some sort.
All else works well & has a great battery life, so I am using a live usb with persistence with the laptop.
All is good enough except for suspend.
Here's the scenario:
Press a button
Things happen (fan whirs, some lights come on- looks/sounds/smells as if it is on
Screen is black/not on
I try 8000 keystroke combinations to wake it
I press and hold power button to shut it off
To clarify about the screen being "black/not on"-
it's black- definitely not back lit
I have left it alone in that state for over 20 minutes with no change
I have searched the forums and tried a couple of solutions proffered for others in similar situations with no love (stuff about killing the xserver and a couple of esoteric to me bits with startup scripts- it was a scattershot attempt that I've lost the references too (I apologize for that))
One detail that seemed different in my case is that I am running a live usb with persistence- pretty much all the other cases involved regular old hardrive installed ubuntu.
So, one question for experts I have is- is a live usb ubuntu with persistence (running on a laptop) capable of suspending? Does the usb nature or persistence mess stuff up?
All other input welcome.

I honestly don't know if a persitent USB installation has a swap file or not, and I think the type of suspend or hibernate you are talking probably requires a swap file larger than the physical memory size.
