SubjectRe: APM suspend system lockup under 2.4.2 and 2.4.2ac1

Unfortunately, the APM maintainer, Stephen Rothwell, seems to have
gone into hibernation (pun) and is not responding to emails.

Are all kernel messages dumped to syslog? See syslog.conf(5).

If the screen shutdown, all the PM enabled drivers OK'd the suspend
and the APM state was changed.

Perhaps the particular driver you used bungled things somehow. You
could try again with the driver/card unloaded, which would help narrow
the cause of the problem down.
