Lubuntu 12.04 slow resume from hibernate? Try updating your video drivers

I recently installed Lubuntu 12.04 on my Toshiba A305 laptop and immediately ran into the "slow resume from hibernate" problem; the laptop was going into hibernate very quickly, but resuming was taking over 3 minutes!

What seems to have fixed it in my case is updating to the proprietary video driver (ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX driver under Preferences > Additional Drivers), which I had neglected to do. Now resume takes a more reasonable 1 minute or so from the BIOS screen to the login prompt.
