If I suspend out of X (from a console) the monitor comes up in standby too.
I use the proprietary nvidia driver (ooold AGP GF6200) so it may be due to that.
Anyway, I have looked on kernel parameters to see if it helps in some way. Stock kernel parameters as I don't know if Fedora's kernel has any custom ones.
So the one regarding resolution/refresh rate is 'video='. For me it would be
(kernel-doc package has the instructions in kernel-parameters file which refers to other docs)
I haven't seen anything that would disable framebuffer and regarding vga modes (which, in my minimal knowledge of the subject looks like how many lines/columns are used) the suggestion is to use vga=ask
** Short intro for the impatient: Just use vga=ask for the first time,
** enter `scan' on the video mode prompt, pick the mode you want to use,
** remember its mode ID (the four-digit hexadecimal number) and then
** set the vga parameter to this number (converted to decimal first).
Nothing worked for me yet, though (didn't use the vga=ask).
Although it looks like an EDID issue, it seems it's something more directly related to the driver and I'm still to find a workaround for that (and I didn't remove nvidia for nouveau to test - although suspend works fine on the live-CD which uses nouveau; I may do it, but I may rather have this feature broken than use nouveau day in day out).
