Not really the time, but what Ii have oobserved since ~ one month is nearly the same as you see yourself, so I can confirm.

patch #7 for me too

I don't use alsa, sorry

Yes, I confirm this is the case too for me with a albook 15" 1,25GHz : usb seems to cause kernel panics.

For example :

usb mouse inserted - > close the lid
deconnect usb mouse (or whatever usb)
open the lid :  aie !! kernel panic... etc

no usb inserted :  crash
not every time, but very often I close/open the albook

Next is in *strange behaviour* category :

Linux + Mol + compilations (both on Linux and Mac OSX with ssh + wifi) : sleep works fine, builds are stopping and everything goes fine when I open the book the next time :-)

For the same laptop (albook), I have observed too the same problem : long sleeps are better than shorts...
