Nope. Under both BSD/OS and NetBSD, an attempt to send the laptop to
sleep gets "unable to enter requested state". I am assuming I have to,
say, ifconfig everything down first, but I haven't been able to find out
which thing is not-yet-down that I need to shut off. I patched the
kernel once to go through trying individual devices, and was able to get
the screen to blank (X can't do this on this display, yet) and get a hard
drive shutting down noise, but I haven't been able to get the ALL_DEVICES
sleep to work.
