Only Thing I did is Enable vbetool. And Switch to text mode.

And I don´t Use a framebuffer on the console. only plain text mode. Maybe 
Radeonfb is confusing your videocard? have you got an ATI card? Do you use 
Firewire? I don´t but I´ve heard it can cause problems, so unload those 
modules aswell if they are loaded.

By the way: Im using vanilla-kernel-2.6.12.1, but it works here since 2.6.10 
if I remember correctly.

Also test If its only the video card that doesn´t work by blindly going to VT1 
(Ctrl-Alt-F1) and blindly logging in as root and issueing halt. If the system 
goes down you can be pretty sure its only the Videocard.

And in case it helps, heres my complete ram.conf (if you use it add all USB 
modules to BlacklistedModules):

# Example ram.conf file for suspending to RAM. Adapt to your own tastes.
# Options are not case sensitive.
# 
# Run "hibernate -h" for help on the configuration items.
