I worked out something similar, temporarily removed
/etc/rc2.d/S99acpi-support in recovery mode and all worked, then edited
/etc/default/acpi-support to dsiable suspend and hibernate and added back
the rc2.d link. It seems to be working fine now.
I suspect I only need suspend disabled actually.

Yes, "apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" is an absolute must.
