I have just created a patch that gives zhone visual feedback when

This will, in that order highlight four bars on the screen: “keep
pressed”, “let go”, “suspending” and “waking up”. They are highlighted
when the user pushes down POWER, when he has pushed it for one second,
when he releases it in time and when the phone wakes up.
This also has the effect that keeping it pressed for more than three
seconds it will _not_ suspend, as to not interfere with a shutdown or
restart triggered by the Altr-Ctrl-Del sent this way.

I’ll soon submit that for inclusion, so maybe that problem will be
resolved as well.
