Well, i did what you told me and compiled swsusp in the kernel and made an usbcore module. S5 works just fine but with S3 it goes down as it should but it doesn't come back up. The screen stays black but i hear my hard disk come up again. I tried with EnableVbetool and VbetoolPost enable but it didn't help. Did you changed anytime in ram.conf ?
