I have a couple systems that behave that way. The fix that worked here 
was to append 'apm=off' to the kernel parameters. E.g.,

   title CentOS (2.6.9-22.0.2.EL)
     root (hd0,0)
     kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-22.0.2.EL ro root=/dev/md1 apm=off
     initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-22.0.2.EL.img

To my chagrin, I've never investigated what it works...
