When i run the suspend to ram script, it causes the system to suspend to ram fine, but if I try to wake it up, I get a black screen, noises from the hdd & it shuts down.

This is my first go at it. The config file wasn't very well documentated, so guessed a few things.
/etc/hiberate/ram.conf:
Code:
# Example ram.conf file for suspending to RAM. Adapt to your own tastes.
# Options are not case sensitive.
# 
# Run "hibernate -h" for help on the configuration items.

### sysfs_power_state
UseSysfsPowerState mem

### Scriptlets
###   Scriptlets provide support for doing all sorts of things before and after
###   suspending. The defaults settings here should work for most people, but
###   you may wish to edit these to taste. Consult "hibernate -h" for help on
###   the configuration settings.
