I have a peculiar problem with my Debian Wheezy install, that is I am unable to suspend correctly. Upon suspending, my system makes a full shutdown and boots to the BIOS, the grub, and I need to login again.
I have found some blog posts and questions about suspend not working for some people, have tried modifying a few suspend scripts with no avail. Unfortunately, I can't recall what I read since I made 10-15 google searches about a week ago, but I can find them if needed.
It's a second fresh install off of a clean ISO image, after I corrupted the kernel on my last install trying to clean off Java. I'm not exactly an expert at debugging these kinds of things, so I can't really provide any details about it, other than some system info:
Release 7.8 (wheezy) 64-bit Kernel Linux 3.2.0-4-amd64 GNOME 3.4.2
why does suspend put my system into shutdown? How can I fix it?
If you need any debug/additional info, please comment.

Everything else seems to be irrelevant to the issue, but if you need the HDD or more info, again, ask in the comments.
