Can you SSH in from another machine?
If so, stopping and restarting the window manager (or the login
manager) might reset things.
This sort of thing has been fairly common over the years, and
the usual workaround is to add
to the hibernation script, which switches the video card out of
graphics mode and into text mode, after which the hibernation
continues and then when it resumes, you tap ctrl-alt-F1 or
similar to get back to your X11 session.
