The first way to debug, is to try to sleep with rmmod'ing every unneeded
module (snd*, usb*...), and see the one which is against sleeping. 

Try also to go to sleep with X switched off (/etc/init.d gdm stop;
snooze in console)

No problem here with same machine, kernel 2.6.5. I still do the usual
start-stop-start at boot time and if works nicely. I don't even know if
it is really needed.
