On mine I changed /etc/power/pwrctl adding in pwrctl_Core99() :
                # stop esd which used alsa
                killall esd
                # stop alsa
                /etc/init.d/alsa force-stop

                # maybe force wakeup of media bay devices?
                # restart alsa
                /etc/init.d/alsa start
                # start esd
                /usr/bin/esd &

But it still hangs sometimes :(
in fact force-stop appears to fail sometimes, i don't know why.
