I have seen the same thing. After resume, I often don't have and screen
image at all. Its black. No back light. But the system is running. If I
ctrl-alt-F2 to a shell, (its still black) and log in blind, and carefully type
init 3, the screen lights up again. Init 5 and I can log in again.

But of course I would have lost any unsaved work, so the usefulness of
suspend to ram is largely lost.

(My hardware vendor (dell) has a bios upgrade that is supposed
to fix this but I have not applied that yet) .

I've had mixed luck with suspend to ram over the years. Even on Windows.

I've had both suspend to disk and suspend to ram working in SUSE since 9.3
but suspend to ram will often corrupt things and cause them to fail in
strange ways. I always save my work when I am about to attempt

Suspend to disk almost always works, except when on
wireless, where I have to either shut down the wireless (jerk out the
card or power the wireless transmitter off) before I suspend. If I
don't I have to do it after I resume. I'm sure there is a Correct way
to handle this, but this way seems quicker.

I have found that Kubuntu did no better in this regard.
