note to others:  mikus is describing non-default behavior.  the 
default behavior is for the CPU to suspend after about 15 seconds
of inactivity.  45 seconds after that, the system will wake to dim
the screen.  3 minutes later, the screen will be blanked, and the
system will sleep.  these are the settings that we'd most like
testing with.  feedback on the durations of the timers themselves
would also be interesting, though finding bugs is moreso.
