I've added
	device	acpica
to my kernel and removed
	device	apm0
Now all work very well!

Handbook says that ACPI is better to use than APM. I probably had problems 
while using APM (even enabled in any sort).
Also handbook says that to enable ACPI on -STABLE you need to add 'device 
acpi' to kernel config, but I found that it must be acpica instead! Maybe 
it's a mistake?
