The 2-3 minutes thing means it panics probably.

It may be waking up, but with the brightness left at 0... try pressing
repeately on "low brightness" until it reaches 0, then slowly back up.

I'm not sure what's up, it works fine for others with the same machine,
I've been reported.

You should avoid mixing the swsusp patches with my sleep patch, that may
be the problem.

BTW. What is the "alubuttons-patch" ?
