The only chance that AcpiEnterSleepStatePrep() can return AE_NOT_FOUND
would be in AcpiGetSleepTypeData() when it calls AcpiNsEvaluateByName().
Can you try reinstalling the acpi.ko with debugging enabled
$ cd /sys/dev/acpica5
$ make obj && make depend && make
$ su make install

and read the kernel messages on the console after setting the following
sysctl variables and issuing acpiconf -s5:
sysctl debug.acpi.layer="ACPI_NAMESPACE ACPI_HARDWARE"
sysctl debug.acpi.level="ACPI_LV_ERROR ACPI_LV_NAMES"

The "bad character" problem itself has been resolved it seems, but this issue
contains some other problems. Would you like to keep this one open?

I'll check tomorrow when I'm back at the box and report back.
