You have to suspend the machine using APM, instead of shutting it down.
I'd suggest using standby mode.

a la APM man page:
APM(1) Linux Programmer's Manual APM(1)
apm - query Advanced Power Management (APM) BIOS
apm [ -vVmsS ]
apm reads /proc/apm and presents the output in a human-

**--> with a compliant APM BIOS. apm also allows the machine to
**--> be put into standby or suspend mode.
Put the machine into suspend mode if possible.
Put the machine into standby mode if possible.
ergo: apm -S
