No, I tried that before (sorry, did not mention that)

I enabled the magic sysrq and verified that I can use it when the system 
is up and running. When provoked a resume failure, the system did not 
react to any of the sysrq combinations.

So it looks to me like the system is just completely dead. Any ideas how 
I can gather more information? Suspend/resume worked well in Fedora 12 
and in the beginnings of Fedora 13 so I really want to have that feature
