You might like to try using the 'hibernate' script from the Suspend2
project, rather than the Ubuntu 'acpi-support' hibernate and sleep
setup.  Have a look at the changes I've made to my copy of
'acpi-support' "" and "" to support this:

If you edit the "/etc/hibernate/hibernate.conf", you can set it up to
work with the stock swsusp used by the stock Breezy kernels.  As long as
that works for you, you may as well go with it unless you've a little
more time to try the rest of the setup described on that Wiki page.

A nice feature of 'hibernate' is that it lets you run hook scripts
during the suspend and resume process using the 'OnSuspend' and
'OnResume' directives in the hibernate.conf.  Something you can do there
is to ask NetworkManager to go into 'sleep' mode before suspending, and
then to wake up after resuming.  If you do that at the right times, it
will sleep before the modules are unloaded, and wake up after they are
back in place.  See the Wiki page for details.
