As a side note, I had the exact same issue on my powerbook 15" (1Ghz). It went 
down for good after a long "sleep" on a ben-9 kernel, but I had been noticing 
the first symptoms (like the display not coming up at all, or getting all 
messed up in yaboot or after) occasionally for a while before that, and it 
started well before I got your first sleep-patched ben-8 kernel on it. So it 
seems mostly unrelated to the sleep code in that case as well, and besides, 
there was a girl at the Apple Care Center who had the same tibook, the same 
issue, and only used OS X...

In case you hadn't had the info on powerbooks...
