I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 and for some reason when I suspend my laptop, when I come back, the track pad doesn't work.

I also can't hibernate at all. sometimes it starts to then comes right back up and sometimes it just goes to a blank screen with a little pulsing underscore in the top left corner. either way it runs down the battery as fast as if it were still on.

If I could get either one working that would be great.

(Its a Gateway Laptop with an AMD processor and 1 Gb Ram, and 2.7 Gb swap space so I don't think swap is the problem)
