Exegnu is straight Debian Squeeze, built from a clean debootstrap, with 
a stock Debian kernel, with (not the entire metapackage) TDE installed. 
No core stuff is altered from Squeeze. Whatever your DE, that is 
unlikely to cause hibernate/resume issues.

A quick look through the search engines shows others with similar 
problems, e.g. :

Most likely this is neither a bug from Exe nor TDE  I have nothing that 
new here to test that (and never actually used hibernate/resume) Squeeze 
is ~2 years old now, wheezy is coming soon

Have you tried the latest kernel from squeeze-backports? 
firmware-linux-nonfree installed?
