Package: acpi-support
Version: 0.121-1
Severity: normal

Hello, recently my X40 laptop seems to be queueing multiple
sleep events up and executing the >= 1 events after the
first one has completed. That is, if I press the sleep
button combo, the laptop goes to sleep, but on resume it
immediately goes back to sleep. This happens on average 2-3
times in a row. It only happens with the button combination
and not if I invoke sleep via prodding /sys/power/state or
calling pm-suspend or using gnome-power-manager.

I'm not 100% sure whether the fault lies with acpi-support,
when I've found out more I will reassign as necessary.
