For me -tested Om2007.2, ASU, Qtopia- , Qtopia was the distro with the
best suspend behaviour : always wake up on calls, I think also for
sms, and does not wake up else (gsm registration...). Keypad during
calls also worked.

But maybe since the last release it is not so true anymore... not used
enough to be sure but I think I have more little hiccups too...
And yes, gsm may be less good because these 3 last days (after
update), it usually decides to automatically connect to another
(Roaming) network (stronger reception). Last weeks it didn't, and it
is at the same location.
(And that is a problem for me since manual selection of network does
not work, so I have to keep roaming....)
