Does this also occur when suspending from a text console (i.e. not from
within X)? Reason why I ask is because I have exactly this behaviour
with XFree86 4.0.1 on my system (600X, SuSE 7.0): When suspending from
within X, the system is frozen after resume. When switching to a text
console before suspend, everything is fine.

Note: This is not the XFree86 4.0 that comes with SuSE 7.0 by default. I
had to upgrade to 4.0.1 (from XFree's FTP server) as this version
supports the 600X' graphic chip (NM2360) for the first time.

Just a thought ...
