But that's a whole different issue. I agree that a forced suspend for
things like that make sense, just not for power managing a running
system. PC style hardware like that doesn't wake up from suspend for
funny things like a keypress either (good thing too).

Anyway all that already works (more or less), so I don't see the
problem.
