Hi Jake, thanks for the comments.

This happens occasionally, and your mail prompted me to debug why.
I've just filed a bug on it: http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/5703
Until this is fixed, you'll indeed have to hit the power button to
come out of "sleep" (unless the lid detection happens to work).

Totally agreed, and this is http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/4843. I'll
push a fix for it soon.

This is http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/2401, which I think should be moved
from Update.2 to Update.1. Jim, do you agree?

This is http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/3355.
Thanks for the comments; as you can see, we want to fix all of these.
