Check your configuration.  It may be set to "hibernate" and 
not "suspend" when you close the lid.  I guess by "restart" you mean 
power on.  If so, does it restore the desktop to the state a priori to 
closing the lid?  If this works then hibernate works for your lappy.

This tells us that "suspend" is also working on your lappy.  See above
