I can only report on a T530:
I'm running Kubuntu 14.04 on it, and I'm not aware of any 
software-related issues.
Admitted, I have moments when the screen goes black, but the system 
continues running, so I suspect a hardware issue (loose contact, ...).

I don't use suspend/resume, so I can't report on that.

The wallplug I use is switched, I use that to control the charging 
process: switching it on or off while the system is running only has the 
obvious effects of making the plug icon in the KDE task bar appear/ 
disappear and the screen go bright/dim, definitely no freeze.
