Re: APM problem on laptop

Set APM to _not_ blank the display. Use "setterm -powersave on" instead.
Put it in an rc script.
Apparently APM screen blanking doesn't work nearly as well as VESA screen
blanking. I don't know if this will solve your suspend problem, but it will
make that message go away.

Tell us the APM settings in your BIOS setup.
