Hmm.  That sucks.  I'd like to debug why you're running into this.  However  
I've been using wicd for over two years and never had this problem, but I'm 
also running a custom-built kernel (and have been for a long time).

Any idea why wicd would prevent your laptop from suspending?  The best first 
guess I have is perhaps a bug with the wireless card driver or firmware such 
that it won't enter the suspend state.
