Thank you Kevin, the reports are very much appreciated.

It looks like the stability of the UI after resuming from suspend has
been greatly improved with the recent images.  I loaded the Apr 17
image, and the kernel image mentioned in this post, as well as the
UBoot image on the recommended page
on my GTA01Bv4 device.

After a full-night charge, I set the Power Management to: Dim first,
then lock.  The device goes to suspend mode after about 5 minutes.

The battery lasted for 16 hours on suspend, with about 30 minutes of
use (calls, gllin, tangogps).  I pushed the Aux button several times,
an the UI restored to a fully operational mode in about 3 seconds.
Sound feedback no longer worked, however.

I also made 3 calls to the phone.  2 of them caused the phone to
resume from suspend, and start vibrating.  One didn't (this was in the
morning after it had been suspended for about 6 hours), so I left a
numeric page which I got as soon as I pushed the button to resume from
