How do I get suspend working again?

http://askubuntu.com – Over the last 24hrs my suspend option has ceased to work. I am running Ubuntu 11.10, Gnome 3.2.1, and 3.0.0-14-generic kernel on a desktop machine; I have to click on suspend. Is there a setting I can change that will give me back the suspend function? (HowTos)
