This sounds like a well-known APM/local-APIC clash.

Never ever use DISPLAY_BLANK if you also have SMP or UP_APIC.

With APIC support enabled (SMP or UP_APIC), APM must be constrained:
built-in driver, not module

This is because the apm driver does BIOS calls, and many BIOSen
(including the code in graphics cards, e.g. all Radeons it seems)
like to hang if a local APIC timer interrupt arrives.
