could you please prefix the subject with distribution used? thanks.
i am not able to infer, what exactly you're doing:
- disabling gsm via call to sysfs
- calling apm -s manually

- disabling gsm via call to sysfs
- pressing pwr/hitting a button/ whatever your distribution offers to  

what i could think of is, that (either as script executed by apm or as  
part of your distribution's way to suspend) there are requests made to the  
gsm, to prepare suspend:
- minimize rescanning
- go to sleep state
since gsm is powered of. these request do a) not return or b) not  
a) a timeout is probably to big -- decreasing might lead to b)
b) the returncode != success in turn results in an uncatched exception  
that prevents any further process of suspend
