With patch #6 in some random situations, my PowerBook G4 (ATI 9600)
doesn't goes to sleep.
One situation is:
 - Turn PB
 - Work
 - Sleep
 - 14 hours of sleep
 - Turn back from sleep (perfect, no problem at all)
 - Work for 4 hours (mails, www, no USB, Bluetooth, etc)
 - Try to sleep and problem...

When I try to make sleep my PB, nothing happens (in X), and I can't
switch from X to console.
Sorry, I can't help you more with this bug, I will keep trying to
establish which are the events that trigger this bug.
