What I would like to know is how this is all supposed to work. I tried
a non-APM kernel on a Dell Inspiron 3200 and when I press the suspend
button (actually a sensor to tell when the lid is closed), the system
is suspended (I don't know whether it's to disc or RAM). When I
release the button, the kernel resumes, but has lost time.

When I switched to an APM kernel, pressing the suspend button suspends
as expected, and when I release the kernel resumes, and it fixes up
lost time. However, several seconds later the system suspends *again*
(of it's own accord) and I have to press the power button to resume
it. In the second suspend the kernel looses time.

What gives?
