I'm sure this has come up numerous times, but I've still not found a good reference/resolution.

I've got a HP Mini 110:

Running stock old Gnome desktop (not the new gnome shell, not unity) on 10.04.4 LTS (will upgrade to new LTS when released)

Unfortunately power-management is extremely poor.

The power-management profile is set up to suspend the device when the lid is closed (on wired or wireless networking).
Unfortunately this no loger works, and the machine continues running when I place it in my carry-bag. It does not suspend when I set it to suspend manually either.

In the past it worked OK, but it's stopped working correctly for a while now, and I have no idea why that would be.

Can anyone please provide me with some insight or assistance, please?

on a hunch I installed kernel 3.n

It seems to work, although it's still too early to say whether or not it's actually resolved the issue.

Standby works, but wireless is broken now...
