This problem also exists with 2.4.25-powerpc on a pismo.  It maybe
something to do with pbbuttonsd and seems to only happen when you set
coversleep=no .  So the work around I use sounds like it won't work
for you.  It used to work for me to leave coversleep=no but something
changed during one of the upgrade cycles and it stopped working.  I
don't know exactly when.  If you want to you might use the dated
archive server to revert you system back 6 months or so and see if you
can get that problem to disappear.  Then, you'd have to gradually
bring it up to data (probably a kernel or pbbutonsd package) until you
found in which upgrade it broke, then you could file a bug and get the
bugger fixed.  Yeah, it's a lot of work, but if you want it fixed
someone's got to do it.

I believe mine was doing this on ac power as well as on battery.  See,
I figured I could just close down the lid and walk away because it had
ac power and wouldn't drain the battery.  I was wrong.
