I don't know whether you're talking hot-fix or mid-term (aka: proper) 
solution. Hot-fix: Do anything you want. Mid-term:  Please not the apm 
emulation. This is completely deprecated and really phasing out nowadays.

Regarding responsibilities, the suspend cycle should be somewhat like:

pimd: "please set wakeup time for next appointment"
eventd: "Ok, this is far away and there's no one playing music or watching a 
film right now, I guess we can shutdown now"
deviced: "Righto, let me configure the modem and the rest of the peripherals 
to a safe state... done. Suspending"
