I think you might be experiencing the dreaded black screen upon
wakeup.(after seeing you're quick video);
I was having the same with my macbook pro, when running
radeonhd(haven't tried s2ram yet to see if this resolves the issue).
Although was told it should fix the issue.
Did have the same(black screen of death wakeup); with a dell
inspiron, but then realized my graphics modules weren't configured
As for radeonhd when I come around to it, I will try s2ram to see, until then
(sorry for the dreaded word) fglrx...
As for the pressing of buttons, the initial pressing of the power button send's
shutdown to the machine for me, but when suspending the system, the power button
wakes the machine up, or closing and opening the lid.
