'acpiconf -s4' also brings laptop to unwakeable state. Power button begins to flash, when I press any button there is some disk activity, power button light turns on. And nothing happens.
'apm -z' produces similar result.

Maybe it's better to ask what works?
Is there any way I can use suspend/sleep mode? Any basic way to make it sleep?
