Yet Another Screen Of Death

Hi list!
I think something similar have already been discussed here, but not
exactly my problem.
The problem is: I can't wake up from suspend. The first time after
reboot I try to wake it up it showes me a white screen with a
horisontal gray line at the bottom which quickly fades to black
screen. The rest of the system is working, I can ssh into the device
and suspend it again using power button.
The next time I try to wake it up it usually showes me black screen,
but sometimes it's white and sometimes I see vertical black/gray/white
'jazzy' lines that respond on me touching the screen. The most
interesting thing is that sometimes it showes a normal screen even if
it was unable to wake up previously.
I can't tell whether it is temperature related, but it definately
doesn't matter how long it was suspended.
It never happens on startup.
I'm using OM 2008.12 distribution. I tried andy-tracking kernel about
a month ago with no luck.
Is it a ralatively common problem or I'm so unlucky to be the only one?
