It really depends on the config of your system.  First of all, try to identify what Bios do you have, there're Plug N play bios and ACPI bios.  Win98's power management works best with the latest ACPI bios.
We really need more info. to be any help...
i.e. Keyboard (USB or PS/2)
mouse (USB, PS/2, serial?)
Chipsets of m/b... etc...

      Please tell me the vitals your system, ie; cpu make and model,
      How much ram , pci, type of mouse, video adapter, network, what
      kind of Network Adapter, significant software and anything you can
      think of. Operating System and version. Updates, Service Packs.
      Do you have or did have IE4X and ACTIVE DESKTOP?
      There are many variables and we could spend weeks trying to solve
      something while I don't know what we're working with. :)

      Regards,
      Bud

Most of the time the problem with not suspending correctly is due to drivers that are loaded.  If you have a Sound Blaster they updated there drivers because people were having the same problem your having.  I suggest updating all of you hardware drivers.  

Let me know if this works

You'll find your answer at
http://search.dejanews.com/query_profile.xp?query=Win98+APM&nofilt=1

choose
alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.tyan

I'd go thru them all, since we don't know your major hardware and software. It makes a difference.
