Yeah that was an oops on my part. I set the BIOS to only allow S1  
sleep. I set it to S3 this time, it went to sleep and everything  
powered off: USB, display. I tapped the power switch to wake it up  
and I was greeted by a long beep and then the system reset itself. No  
clues in dmesg as to what happened.
