 disabled, so for this ticket I shall de-emphasize poor power management.
 > Just FYI but You mentioned that you had the "Advanced power mangement"
 boxed checked.  Thats the auto-suspend switch.  In joyride Auto-suspend is
 not disabled per say its just off by default.  If you check that box then
 you turn it on.  So you should have been suspending.

 I see, I think.  I should have been suspending, but never noticed (which
 means it works well).  But my battery did not last any longer (which means
 suspend is useless for me).

 I have not seen the backlight switch off today (this ticket), nor has My
 Battery gotten stuck again (Ticket #8010).  Mind you, I did do a clean-
 install using copy-nand u:os2301.img  since opening those tickets.  The
 bugs arrived after olpc-update joyride-2301 (from previous joyride-2263).
 So the bugs remain intermittent non-reproducible mysteries.
