I really like this idea.  If some event happens (such as a received SMS, 
missed call, etc), use the accelerometers to see if the phone is moved for 
some number of seconds afterward.  If not, then configure them to wake the 
phone the next time it is moved before going into suspend.  When movement 
wakes it up, notify the user to check for a missed event (turn on 
display/blink LED/vibrate/whatever).
