I am currently using the 20080716 build, from:

Try running the apm -s  That will suspend to ram. I do this by hand
every time I want the phone to suspend. The power button, or a call will
wake it.  Please keep in mind, suspend to ram is currently unstable.
Just give it a 12~100 hour test, let me know. apm with out any arguments
will give you the battery status.  None of this is any good if I am the
only one who can get these numbers ;-)
