it needs to to tell the gsm modem to go into "low power i'm suspended" mode -
thus it needs to intercept the suspend action until it's managed to do this. i
THINK that qpe simply manages to error here. either calypso does the right
thing and replies and qpe doesnt know, or calypso just errors or refuses. but
the problem is definitely in that space somewhere. :( (kill the apm process
thats hung and presto - backlight will be back on! but you have a badly
behaving calypso i think... so ymmv after that)
