You are right. I don't have any swap at all any my X240 suspends (and
resumes) just fine.=20
The only issue I had recently was related to xscreensaver locking my
screen before suspend. It looked like resume failed (black screen, only
mouse cursor visible) but killing xscreensaver helped. I found many
others with similar problems. But that won't help the OP since he
doesn't run X.

ACK, on old machines it might be worth a try to disable KMS.

ACK, see my experience above.
If politics is the blind leading the blind, entertainment is the fucked-
up leading the hypnotised.
