There is an opened bug on this [1], but nothing seems to move.
I've the same problem and it is really annoying have to poweroff the 
laptop even for the few minutes needed to move from a place to 

I've investigated a bit with google, and i was able to find a change in 
the appletouch driver relative to the 'Geyser mode' [2], but i don't 
know if that change is the responsible of the bug.
Unfortunately i don't have the time to investigate with git bisect.
I've also tried the 2.6.25 from the kernel-team repository and the bug 
is still there...

I hope that Johannes Berg is reading us and can fix it soon ;))
(Johannes, thanks for your work, really ;))
