I'm in the same boat with my E-350 laptop
I'm in the same boat with my E-350 Acer laptop. There is no suspend/resume with closed driver, but it works with open source driver. Unfortunately video is so bad with the open driver that I boot into Windows for any videos. I have logged the bug with Ubuntu (even though it is the same with all distro's - I have tried Mint, Mandriva, Fedora, etc), and have tried manually installing (and uninstalling) each version of Catalyst through 11.7. I even updated to latest bios. I will probably try 11.8, but I am not hopeful of it working. I have also tried all workarounds, including even the trick with debugging the sleep with the bios clock. Nothing. This will be my last laptop I buy without Linux preloaded!

I've tried 11.7 and 11.8 with a e-350 APU and I have the same suspend issue. It's bearable but... I wish AMD would get this fixed *sigh* .
