(Cool, I didn't think that would work yet!  But it does.)

That's odd, that works here.  It's pretty hacky, though, while we're
trying to get finer-grained control of wakeup sources working.  To
fix, you can "cat /proc/acpi/wakeup", and if "EC" reads "disabled",
"echo EC > /proc/acpi/wakeup".

If you watch carefully, you'll see the power LED blink for a tiny
amount of time when you close the lid -- that's us going to sleep
and then being woken straight back up again.  I've filed a bug on

Thanks for the testing!
