Setting that helped (somewhat).  There was no video on resume but setting 
system password in bios hack fixed that, which got me to on resume it 
immediately going into the kernel debugger with:

Stopped in pid 1141.1 (sysctl) at 0xcc9b6a80: sti

and no response from the keyboard.

I realised a little after that that I don't have PCI_INTR_FIXUP set in this 
kernel so when I get a chance I'll try again with that set and the last 
couple of days kernel updates.
