I know the hardware is able to do this, but does the linux system actually 
to this yet?

excluding the USB/SD interfaces, I believe that the XO-1 hardware is able 
to sleep/wake fast enough to go to sleep between keystrokes, but there 
isn't any software build available that actually does anything like this.

I'm not aware of any sofware build that will sleep while the screen is 
still powered and displaying things.
