Notes

Was tested with Debian Squeeze. There are a few issues with the wireless card upon resume. This can be worked around by reloading the driver:

modprobe -r brcm80211 ; modprobe brcm80211

You can set that command to run whenever you resume, however it is done on your distro, on Debian Squeeze:

$ cat /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/53brcm8021 
#!/bin/sh
# reloads the bc43xx driver upon resuming

. "${PM_FUNCTIONS}"

suspend_nm()
{
	return 0
}

resume_nm()
{
	`/sbin/modprobe -r brcm80211 ; /sbin/modprobe brcm80211` > /dev/null
}

case "$1" in
	hibernate|suspend)
		suspend_nm
		;;
	thaw|resume)
		resume_nm
		;;
	*) exit $NA
