Anacron killed on resume - how to fix it? ACPI setup?

I recently started using suspend/resume on my desktop when shutting it
down for short periods, or sometimes even when shutting it down for
longer periods, as it's so much faster to resume than doing a full

However, when I resume anacron gets killed because for some reason the
resume scripts think my system is a laptop (which it isn't) and they
kill anacron to save power.  Doing a standard start-up from power off
anacron isn't killed.

I've done some searches and there are a couple of reports of this bug
but no really reasonable workaround.  Can anyone suggest any sensible
way around this problem?
