hang on resume from standby

My system sporadically hangs when resuming from standby. As it starts to
wake, the screen comes back, but then the disk light goes on solid and
everything: mouse, keyboard are totally unresponsive and I need to power off
the system and reboot. No errors or event are logged in the event logs.

I have an HP Pavilion a350n, 1.5G memory, 3.2GHz processor, DVD Burner, DVD
ROM, and 2x200G Hard Drives: a Seagate ST3200A (Original equipment) and an
added Maxtor 6B200PO as a slave on the same IDE cable.

I tried adding the registry key
HKey_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Atapi\Parameters\WaitOnBusyOnPowerUp
set to 1 as described in KB317272 to no avail.

I have not been able to detect a pattern to the hangs. Sometimes they will
occur after the first resume, other times the system will continue to run for
days with no problem. At this point I'm at a loss. Any help in
troubleshooting/resolving the problem would be a gratefully accepted
