It is something like I need information on how the following thing is done:
1) I start an application, cetain dll and registry entries, etc are done. I do some operation.
2) I suspend the mobile phone
3) The application is killed.
4) then after few seconds I resume the mobile phone.
5) At this point of time how do I ensure that the certain dll and registry entries are restored?

all your dlls and registry will be intact :)

it may take some time to restore open handles to e.g. files, but apart from it all should work just as normal

Yes, no reason to worry about a dll or a user registry entry. If we are talking about Windows Mobile running on the phone (Professional), I think, there is almost nothing to worry.
All system dlls - they are XIP. If the application is installed on the main memory or on an internal storage - suspend/resume will not make any bad.
If a data files are on an external storage, SD-card - these devices almost always are unmounted on suspend and restored on resume. There is a special message WM_DEVICECHANGE that is sent to the application - something like the CD removal on the pc. In our apps we handle this message. It is not always very successful. So now we use also the notifications.
Actually, if the app recognized that the device is going to sleep, it should stop all timers and threads and resume them when the device is waking up - something like handling WM_ACTIVATE message.
It's clear, that all BT/other connections are also lost on suspend. Whatelse? GPS?
On the phone the situation is easy. It, actually, never sleeps. :) It just works in a very slow mode and the screen is dark.

I think I know how to explain everything - the mail goal of the suspend mode is to save the battery power, keep the device alive as long as possible.
Maybe you have read that already:

In the end there is an info about the persistant storage, power management, etc.
