Have you set the following config option:
Normally we disable external interrupts while we are making calls to
the APM BIOS as a measure to lessen the effects of a badly behaving
BIOS implementation. The BIOS should reenable interrupts if it
needs to. Unfortunately, some BIOSes do not -- especially those in
many of the newer IBM Thinkpads. If you experience hangs when you
suspend, try setting this to Y. Otherwise, say N.
