This works here for Hardy on 701 with the OS in the built-in drive.
(a) enter the shutdown menu (button at top right corner of screen)
(b) click on suspend
this seems to suspend OK, the power indicator (green light bulb symbol) 
starts blinking

(c) to resume, "press any key does not work. Need press the power-on button
(d) it resumes almost - displays some error message on the console
(e) press Ctrl-Alt-F7 and enter the password when requested

Now it has resumed. I had to restart the pppoe, possibly due to the 
error "no suspend for driver iburst?"
