I have an IBM A30 laptop running a current NetBSD (1.6ZG). I have
problems with apm power management. Stand-by mode works without problems
but suspend mode only partially, i.e. the machine can be but into
suspend mode, but doesn't wake up any more without an ugly reboot.

On the manual page (apm 4) APM_DISABLE_INTERRUPTS option is mentionted.
It seems to be a recommended option for IBM laptops, but in my case
it did not helped.

Any suggestions ?
