Aggressive suspend vs NM/DHCP

Paul, list,

(nor for the first time) I spot an XO that goes into suspend in the
middle of the DHCP conversation. In this case, it was with a bad WEP
key so we never heard back from the DHCP server.

But if you look at /var/log/messages, you see dhclient's DHCPDISCOVER
and 12s later PM: Syncing filesystems... done.

Do we wake up on broadcast DHCP responses properly? (Am I worrying pointlessly?)

Otherwise, is there a way for powerd to wait a bit longer when
NM/dhclient are... active?
