I'm not sure if this is the same thing, but on Fedora 16, since about 2 days, 
whenever I clicked suspend to RAM, the system locked the screensaver, but the 
system never suspended. This morning, I installed the new test kernel, 
3.1.1-2.fc16.x86_64, and now it suspends properly again. Could it have been 
something in the kernel?
