I wasn't clear from your message, how are you turning off you machine?
apm suspend usually (always?) requires a dedicated partition (which
usually needs to be created using a dedicated tool under M$) into which
it stores the memory, do you have that (output of fdisk -l may help)

Was changing the kernel accompanied with reinstallation or was it just
a kernel upgrade?

There actually shouldn't be any problems using acpi and apm together as
acpi is used if it is detected and otherwise apm is used.
I looks from you mail that acpi is disabled due to the bios date. You
could check if there is a bios update for your computer, it may help.
