A couple of things I've picked up along the way:

First, make sure you're going into S-3 sleep.
-- You can try to add the kernel parameter "acpi_sleep=s3_bios" to the 
GRUB boot line.

Second, run
/bin/echo "LAN0 S3 enabled" > /proc/acpi/wakeup
early in boot up sequence to prep the machine for WOL resume from S3.  I 
added it to /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit

Then just run the normal
/bin/echo -n "mem" > /sys/power/state
ether-wake <aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff>  <-- your MAC adress here
to suspend and resume.

Good luck,

Joe Henley
