I had this problem when going from 9.0 to 9.1. I used the following in my lilo.conf to use real mode apm and it stopped having problems:

append=" devfs=mount apm=realmode_power_off acpi=on"

The key line is the "append" with the "apm=realmode_power_off"

Good luck

Thanks for you help enlight1 but when I tried those settings the laptop battery app (that's what I used to put it into stanby) said I only had partial ACPI functionality and would have to recompile my kernel.

I then merely added the apm_realmode_poweroff to what I already had in the append line and came up with this:

append="devfs=mount apm=realmode_power_off acpi=ht resume=/dev/hda6"

and this allowed me to use the battery app but it still hung. FYI - /dev/hda6 is my swap partition.

Well I guess thats the fun of using the latest and greatest.
