Every build since 8.2.0 (last October) does this, if you go to the
Power control panel and turn on Automatic power management.  For
more power saving by turning off the wifi chip, turn on Extreme
power management.

For 1.5, we plan to turn this on by default, and decrease the amount
of time we wait before entering suspend.
