i'll bring out that gun if i have to, so far so
good with the masking the scanner approach. the
keyboard hasn't dropped all afternoon *knocks on
my previous searches for help on-line didn't
get me far because i was using powerd and power
instead of autosuspend. when you're not sure if
the problem is the kernel or the device it's
hard to know what to search for first. :)
