The hints fixed my mouse..

The sleep issue.. (one-shot).. appears to be
something wrong with a driver somewhere not letting us
go back to sleep..

I can do a

apm -z

and it blanks the screen and starts to suspend... but it
wakes right back up again..

There must be a status somewhere thats not being cleared at
the first wakeup :-(
