I also have a Dell I8K, and have managed the reverse. Although I run Gentoo, not SuSE. Using Suspend2's hibernate script which will unload modules for troublesome hardware clears up most problems. Both suspend to ram and disk work using that script. The only tricky part is doing suspend to ram with the framebuffer enabled. With no framebuffer Gentoo's Xorg can take care of reinitilizing the video card (ATI), but to suspend with the console frame buffer enabled a kernel patch is required. I have no idea what the status of the Nvidia video cards is though.
