Generally, the apm(8) is a legacy interface and it is better to use acpi(4)
directly for anything manufactured in the 2000s. Unfortunately the
documentation is badly behind the current state of affairs.[1]

General steps to test the suspend/resume:

        1. Boot into single user mode (see boothowto(9)).

        2. Issue 'sysctl -w machdep.sleep_state=3'.

        3. Cross your fingers.

The acpi(4) manual page describes 'machdep.acpi_vbios_reset' -sysctl
variable that might have something to do with the reboot when resuming. As a
first step you could try different values for this variable.
