How odd. Sleep never failed to work on my Lombard (wakeup was a thorny
issue at times but BenH got that sorted ages ago) - using my own kernels.
The Debian kernel seems to have a problem there, can anyone else confirm

Apparently the 'keyboard sends Linux keycodes' setting is different (or
support for Linux keycodes is missing from the alternate kernels).
cd `find /proc -name mac-hid` and look into the keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes
file in that directory (I keep forgetting where in /proc space this is
kept, sorry).
