Instead of suspending the complete job, maybe it's easier to submit  
the MPI jobs to a queue which have a queue priority (i.e. nice value)  
of 19, and other jobs to queue with a priority of 0. So the MPI job  
will get less computing time, and you don't have worry about any  
suspension mechanism at all.
