Hi !

I´ve got the same machine. S3 and S4 work here. forget swsusp2. it only makes 
things complicated. use the swsusp which is already in the standard kernel. 

On my machine both S3 and S4 work pretty much out of the box. Only 
configuration is editing the config files hibernate.conf and ram.conf 
in /etc/hibernate. 

Only thing I had to change there is the vbetool option (vbetool on) to get my 
Video card (ATI 9600) reactivated after suspending. You might have to try 
different settings in that section. And figure out if there are any modules 
which need to be unloaded/reloaded. In my case its ndiswrapper and the USB 
Stuff.
And of course don´t forget to emerge vbetool.

greets 
benny
