I've got this exact same system. You need to add the following to
your /boot/device.hints to fix the mouse resume issue:
Also the issue about poor battery life under ACPI S3 suspend (I believe your
APM terminology is incorrect since APM suspend has good battery life, but
other stuff breaks) is that certain devices aren't shutdown fully since they
aren't in the 2110's DSDT and the drivers don't shut them down as the should.
To get a significantly better battery life you will need to search through
the archives of this list and look for the acpi_video DPMS patch posted by
jhb. This will make things much better, but there are still a few things
that need to be fixed in the drivers.
