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.
