Nice trick, I didn't know this one.

Well, I think there is a scheme, but as I seldom used APM myself (my
laptop uses ACPI instead), I can't tell you more. What I am sure of is
that it aint a lm_sensors related, but apm related, problem, so you
should have more luck reading the apm documentation or asking on the apm
mailing-list. All you need to look for is how to have arbitrary commands
issued when the systems wakes up.

Hope that helps,
Good luck.
