I have an iBook G3 and sleep is working just fine with Lenny.
Although, I've disabled gnome-power-manager (which was causing
problems) from System->Preferences->Sessions, and I'm allowing
pbbuttonsd and powernowd to control this. Pbbuttonsd is the main
utility that controls suspend and the laptop specific keys like screen
brightness, sound, and the eject button.

The other flash choice for powerpc is swfdec-mozilla, which I think is
installed by default on Lenny as I just did a fresh install, but I
haven't tried setting it up or anything.
