I guess there are more pressing matters :-). Anyway, I'd like to thank
everyone for FSO: that's exactly the kind of system I wanted when I
bought the phone, very open and hackable in an easy way.

Sadly no news there. I tried a lot of different things earlier but
couldn't get it to suspend, it would just wake up directly from the
accelerometers from this. I'm pretty sure that the accelerometers are
setup correctly (I went through the data sheet and application notes
over and over), and nothing I've tried have helped.

For example, I tried leaving them powered in mach-gta02.c, but no

It almost feels like the level on some of the pins to the accelerometer
chip are unsteady while the suspend is ongoing, but I have neither the
scope nor the competence to sort that out.

So acceleration wakeup is off for now.
