Comment(by bbb8):

 So it seems turning off the gsm modem even manually is not allowing the
 system to suspend but just turning the backlight of the screen off,
 tricking alot of us (including me) into thinking the phone is in suspend
 and is not resuming so only way to take battery out,  but ssh is active
 and apm -s shows device or resource busy , backlight can be turned back on
 by echoing either 1 or 0 to /sys/devices/platform/s3c2440-i2c/i2c-
 adapter/i2c-0/0-0073/backlight/pcf50633-bl/bl_power and ,xset s reset and
 putting brightness back up to 63 , only way i found allowing me to suspend
 again to ./etc/init.d/xserver-nodm stop

 HELP!! :)
