It also sleeps normally, or at least what I expect from an XO running old 
software.  The radio is on and it wakes up when a packet arrives or a key is 
pressed.  But after a while it goes into deep-sleep where the power button is 
the only way to wake it up.

Waking up from a deep-sleep resets the WiFi link.  That takes over 30 seconds.

Is there any way to disable the no-radio sleeping or the normal radio-on 

PS: Wakeup from radio-on sleep is now 1.3 seconds.  (It was 1.6)

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
