I'm experiencing at least very similar behaviour, pbbuttonsd breaks at
some point and is not in anywhay except reboot restartable

I could track down maybe at least one problem:

I'm experiencing problems with alsa, the init script[s]
'/etc/init.d/alsa' and '/etc/init.d/alsasound' don't work anymore, don't
know why, but i can enable sound by loading modules manually, i guess
telling from some experiments with closing the lid after every step i do
and check if sleep still works, pbbuttonsd doesn't break  after modprobing
snd-powermac, snd-pcm, but after doing alsactl restore.


/var/log/daemon.log gives me:

Jul  7 09:26:55 localhost pbbuttonsd: ERROR: Can't open mixer device
[/dev/mixer]. No message of desired type
