Can't unsuspend/unsleep computer

I'm running RH9, which will put the computer to sleep when left idle (usually when I forget to turn it off before going to bed). Whenever this has happened, I have been unable to get it to wake from sleep or suspend mode (pressing keys on the keyboard does not work, though there may be a magical combination that I'm missing). As a result, I have to do a forced shut down by pressing the power switch, which is probably not so good.

Any ideas as to (1) how I can turn the computer back on from this sleep mode, and/or (2) how to disable it?

Many thanks,

ps. I'm using RH9 with the 2.4.xx.19 kernel, and the Gnome GUI, if that helps.

Use latest ACPI backport possibly with own DSDT instead of APM or use that unfreeze fork daemon pea was talking about.
