Um, the only thing I see as a problem, since you said in a previous email (
or later, I'm not sure, this is the order I read them) that all the hardware
requires an non-disclosure, either you're going to need to provide access to
the power up/sleep commands thru the drivers, or reverse engineering this is
going to suck, assuming there's even a software sleep command(I'd assume so,
but normally that begets bad things) even a nice constant for the commands,
and a passthrough character driver would be really nice.

I'm not asking you to go farther than your agreement, but if you could map
the system commands for the major components into the driver, that would be
a wonderful help

Thank you so much, Sean,  for making this all possible, it's really a
wonderful thing
