Yes, swsusp will be storing the ACPI state (along with all the rest of
memory). Swsusp has no way to tell whether the state is invalid or not,
or to exclude arbitrary parts of the memory from the image (particularly
since we're probably not talking about a whole page here). The easiest
way to overcome this problem at the moment is to make sure the state is
the same when you resume as it is when you suspend. Failing that, a DSDT
override that does the right thing. Does unplugging and plugging in the
power post resume get the BIOS to set things right?
