Did the mouse cursor still move or not?

Could also try suspend without any GUI stuff in the way. Or try the
intel ddx instead of the modesetting ddx (assuming that's what
you're using now) and no compositor to rule out GPU hangs killing
the compositor. The intel ddx can also deal with the GPU not
recovering from a hang by switching to software rendering,
whereas modesetting cannot.

Hmm. Also T520 is an optimus laptop maybe? If there's an nvidia
GPU involved it's going to be hard to get anyone to care. Better
switch that off in the BIOS if you haven't already.
