My experience is similar to yours. You were probably hit by the kernel 

I've found that I'm somewhat able to use power management with
kernel 2.6.10 (2.6.11 freezes all the time and I've read on this list that 
there are still problems with 2.6.12 on the G3). 

There are also some gotchas for the sleep/resume to function:

1- Remove ALSA snd-powermac module before sleeping.
2- Shut down dbus-1 before sleeping.

With that sleep/resume works most of the time. It does happen on occasion that 
the resume fails and freezes after 'eth0: resuming'.

Hope this helps
