This post in that same thread mentions that leaving an LED on would
halve the battery life while suspended:

I'm sure it's around somewhere, but does anyone have any data backing
that statement?  What's the power usage to wake the system, see if you
missed anything, then suspend it again?  I might be willing to accept
lower battery life, as long as it was a feature that could be disabled.
