What kind of debug did you do? Do the following ways work:

- logout button, then hibernate
- pm-hibernate (as root)
- echo disk > /sys/power/state (as root)

Also, it'd help to know the kind of hardware you have (and especially
stuff like wireless and graphic cards).

No way. uswsusp is (imho) just plain useless. Hibernation belongs in the
kernel. If it's broken, it should be fixed there.

In any case, it looks at first sight unrelated to Xfce, but the
questions above will help narrow the problem.
