That's one reason why I haven't switched to FreeBSD 5 yet.
Under STABLE, the only XFree86 vs. power management problem comes with
hibernation. When my T23 wakes up after hibernation, XFree86 is frozen.
I have to switch to an ASCII console (ctrl-alt-f1) and back to X (alt-f12)
to get it to limber up. If the hibernation is manual rather than
automatic, I can transition to ASCII console first before hibernating, and
there is no wake-up freeze, but automatic because of flat battery is the
usual reason to hibernate.
