I appended "acpi=off apm=on" to the kernel line but still received the
message that APM is not supported by the kernel.

I also noticed that, when I tried to invoke apm, my fan never stopped
running. Thanks to a previous message, I know my notebook (HP ze4560)
does not provide apm.  (Does any one think a newer BIOS may help this?)

So I went back to acpi.  The command "echo 3 > /proc/acpi/sleep" put the
system to sleep.  But, I was not able to wake it up.  I had to do a hard
reboot.

Tough luck!  But my wholehearted thanks for the discussions and helpful
comments.
