I know this page is older than dirt, but thought you'd like to know it's still helping people. I recently updated my kernel, and switched from pcmcia-cs to pcmciautils, and my computer would lock up coming out of suspend. I discovered that lockups did not occur when physically removing my wireless card before suspending, and the pcmcia eject script fixed the issue for me. It's now behaving as it used to. Thanks! For those who now encounter this issue, it seems /sbin/pcardctl has replaced /sbin/cardctl.

EDIT
Hmmm. . . It works well for me when only briefly in standby, but I just tried bringing it back up after being down for a few hours, and not only did my wireless not come back up, neither would my monitor. And so it goes.

EDIT
SUCCESS!!! It turns out I didn't need any of the pccardctl stuff. What I did need was to remove my ndiswrapper module before suspending. Not sure why this is suddenly necessary, but it works. I went the route of using separate suspend and resume scripts, as described in the wiki based on this thread. In the suspend script I have it stop my wireless and rmmod ndiswrapper, and the resume script restarts my wireless. That's it.
