Compaq Armada Laptop

Has anyone out there managed to get apm/acpi working properly with a
Compaq Armada laptop (I have the M300)? I really like Ubuntu and would
love to be able to use it on my laptop as well.

ACPI support seems not to work - I can put the laptop into sleep, but
trying to wake it up again with the power button just results in the
laptop flashing an orange LED twice and powering down. ACPI support has
always been a bit dodgy, though.

APM support in previous distros (including Debian Sarge) has worked fine
for standby and so on. In ubuntu, the system will go into standby but
then locks up on resuming.

Does anyone have any experiences or ideas for getting apm to work
