Sorry for my late response.
I've been checking your driver, and it always seems suspend/resume
methods are called.  It's;
DRIVER_MODULE(acpi_agp, acpi, acpi_agp_driver, acpi_agp_devclass, 0, 0);

It seems that old laptops don't have VGA specific ACPI objects, so
many people will be happy if we can implement non-ACPI VGA driver w/
ATI chips hack.
BTW, have you checked for XFree86 code?  Hopefully we might find
some hints on DPMS for ATI chips.

Never mind.  I know one more guy who writing ACPI VGA driver,
takawata-san([EMAIL PROTECTED]).  Could you send him
your latest code and contact him?
