I do not have the problem here. The sound is somehow working but i do not get
it, since loading alsa gives me an error, but hei, it works (i can listen to
mp3, but watching videos is somwhow a pain because of syncing problems).

Sleep is not going to work in a near future, since ATI has not provided the
needed information to switch off and back on the graphic card. sleep-to-disk
is somehow working with a patch sent to this list (read and find some success
stories, although i have not tried it).

Here is the same: sleep does not work. But hei, i have the full 5.5 hours of
battery, so i put the screen to level 0 with fblevel and close it. laptopmode
introduced in 2.6.6 might help to save more battery.
