Can you explain what you did to try those parameters ?

This:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/19486/how-do-i-add-a-kernel-boot-parameter

Quote
    Start your system and wait for the GRUB menu to show (if you don't see a GRUB menu, press and hold the left Shift key right after starting the system).
    Now highlight the kernel you want to use, and press the e key. You should be able to see and edit the commands associated with the highlighted kernel.
    Go down to the line starting with linux and add your parameter foo=bar to its end.
    Now press Ctrl + x to boot.

But I inserted  2 lines:

atkdb.reset
i8042.nomux

You don't insert them as new lines. As per the instructions, you add them both to the end of the linux line.

I partially solved the problem.

I can active the keyboard suspending the system after I turn on the netbook. The touch dont work, but I prefer to use the mouse, so it's not a great problem...

I'm seeing no difference between the two xinput outputs :-\

Can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
lsmod
both before and after a suspend.
