Somebody in the thread at some point said:

| No, I checked... Backlight was off and connecting the phone to the PC
| didn't provide any line in my dmesg.


| I also noticed that if, as a mistake, there are more instances of
| wpa_supplicant running (I got two :P) and trying to control the eth0
| interface, all the network related commands start hanging (from ping to
| ifconfig going over iwconfig); killing all the wpa_supplicant instances
| fixed the problem.

Maybe the firmware doesn't like things happening in a funny sequence, or
there is locking issue somewhere.

| Finally I tried to suspend again but, as soon as the LCD backlight was
| off I pressed again the power button, and now the phone didn't come up
| again :(.
| Could this simply due to the fact that I've asked the phone to wake-up
| too early? :|

Shouldn't be, you can do two further tests about it though: use the
headset jack insertion to try to wake instead, and press the AUX button
to see if it will panic.

| PS: This is not in theme, but the issue I had with qtopia-x11 are still
| there. Qpe crashes after few seconds and so the phone can't work... :(

It can be to do with /sys changes maybe... pretty sure the 2.6.28
branches are very "stable" in terms of normal operation.
