This is among the worst problems...
Which version of Mint and some details of your laptop (finding facts about laptops is very hard)
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Hi, the same problem with a Thinkpad T22. For some days I used Ubuntu Feisty and there suspend works not perfectly but it works. Now with "Mint 4.0 XFCE beta 008" after suspend the moon led (it show the suspend status) don't stop blinking and the backlight stay off.
OK, After a update of my pakages the suspend-mode work fine!!!
