Duane, there have always been issues with this aspect of APM. I have found it sufficient to run two X servers to handle the issue. Most of my software runs in an X session without DRI enabled and then when I want to run accelerated 3D I just start up another X session with DRI enabled.
For example, this can be done by running the following command from an xterm in the first (normal, non-DRI session): startx -- :1 -xf86config XF86Config.dri & I've got DRI enabled in the XF86Config.dri file (which just resides under /etc/X11 along side the default config file) and this command starts up an X session on ttyv9 (alt-ctrl-F10). Be sure that you use a different window manager in your .xinitrc if you use either Gnome or KDE!! When I want to suspend, I just shut down the accelerated X session and then when I resume I can start it back up again without ill effects. I hope this helps!
