Which model do you have? My N505VE loses all PCMCIA capabilities after
an APM suspend -- sound enabled or not -- under kernel 2.2.x.

http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net/ftp/BUGS says:

o On the Sony VAIO PCG-N505VE, after a suspend, no interrupts are
  delivered by the CardBus bridge until the system is rebooted.

  Prognosis: I've spent a lot of time trying to track this down, but
  I'm completely stumped.  The PCMCIA drivers appear to restore the
  state of the CardBus bridge correctly, and the PCI interrupt router
  is also configured properly.  But no interrupts get through.

It doesn't seem to have been fixed, as far as I can tell.
