either by closing the lid, by not doing anything for a while or by
using the "snooze" program that comes with pmud.

well, it looks like it's going to sleep, but the standby led doesn't
blink. just like when i switch it off, except i can't switch it on
again by simply pressing "power", so i suspect it hangs.

it enters sleep mode, even though there are pretty many keyboard and
mouse events that should keep it from doing so.
i get it back by pressing a key after waiting a few seconds.
(immediately after entering sleep mode, key events seem to be
ignored for a few seconds.)
