Default Installing OpenBSD on Thinkpad 600e

I'm new to the forums but not completely new to BSD. Recently I decided to reuse an old laptop that I have had for a while and eventually landed on installing OpenBSD as it had the most supported hardware in the generic kernel.
I still have two main problems and I hope someone can point me in the right direction. First my audio does not work with OpenBSD. In the dmesg I find a load of lines where the ac97 is querying the hardware but can't find the audio. I know from elsewhere that is should be somewhere around I/O 0x530 and Irq 11 but for some reason OpenBSD can't find it.
Next my apm doesn't quite work. APM can be turned on to run auto/cool etc., and will even put my laptop in suspend with apm -suspend or zzz. The problem is trying to wake it up, once its in suspend it will never come back. Even when I use the laptop keyboard function keys to wake it up it will not come back. I eventually have to turn off the laptop power switch (or drop the battery) and turn it back on to come back.

Any help is appreciated
