You don't happen to use the intel Xorg driver? That driver will fail 
fail in the way you describe if you try to turn off kernel modesetting.

In Fedora 11 I had to have  kernel modesetting disabled to get 
hibernate/suspend/resume to work properly, and when I upgraded I got 
this failure. Unfortunately the hibernate functionality still fails on 
my Thinkpad 50e with modset on.
