I have a T40p too, and I have made these same experiences. The laptop
wakes up perfectly well, but the display remains black, even when
switching consoles.

When I switch to a non-X console in this state (just woken up, black
display), put it into S3 again, then wake it up, it comes up perfectly
and the display is working agan.

That is, it does when using APM. I didn't try that with ACPI before
(the USB bug is a show stopper for me).

Good luck,
