We will only send a 'lid_switch released' event if we see one. What I 
have been doing with my wake scripts is ignoring a 'lid_switch released' 
event, and doing the restoration scripting immediately after the call to 
sysctl to put myself into S3.

I've posted my sleep_button script:

If you want to resume from X, throw in a 'wsconscfg -s 1' before the first 
sleep, and a 'wsconscfg -s 7' (or whatever vt you run X on) after the 
second sleep.

Very good!

What behaviour do you expect?
