usb devices don't "wake up"

Good day all,

I got hold of an old Dell laptop and decided to
install FreeBSD on it.
I managed to install it after a few retrials, and this
is due to the installer  not
being able to write out partitions, complaining that
there was no device entry in /dev for the swap
Now everything works as expected, except after putting
the laptop to sleep with acpiconf -s 3, upon wake up,
the USB devices (network card or flash drive) wouldn't
work anymore.
I tried to restart usbd and devd, and that wouldn't

Anyone has an idea? Here are the dmesg and kernel
