You could if you want, but try closing the lid - does it suspend with
the card in?  If not, then it's below the level of userspace programs
like apmd, and is likely either a kernel-level or hardware-level issue.
I have this problem with PCMCIA cards in my laptop, and I have heard
that this is a 'known issue' that people are working on.  I have just
resigned myself to it for now.

Sorry to not be more help.
