Hmmm, it does seem to work better. When I put the machine manually in
standby mode (apm -S) it looses connectivity, but a keypress brings
the network back up. Still have to test BIOS-initiated sleeps (which
seem to be lighter standby/sleep-mode). Still question remains whether
on a desktop machine the network interface should go into power-save
mode in the first place (and loose connectivity). Presonally, I'd
prefer to see connectivity intact (at least for standby mode). You can
always add ifconfig down to /etc/amd scripts if you want to...
