Tricky to do, if the fn key state is kept internally to the PMU/ADB
hardware. What does the OSX app do, precisely?

It's been reporting that for ages - just means 'no BIOS' for us, unless
someone writes a Forth interpreter for X to use.

I'm seeing that all the time (and weirder stuff) and it doesn't keep the
fw disk from working.
Let me add that USB and firewire sleep support has taken a turn for the
worse, though. With 2.6.9, unplugging and replugging a device would fix
sleep problems (except for mounted devices). Not so in 2.6.11. If BenH has
ideas to try out, I'm willing to work on that.
