Seems to work well on my 1.2GHz 12" iBook. First attempt caused a
failure while I had the WUSB12 adapter plugged in (after reboot when the
device was reinitialized the keyboard stopped working and the mouse went
crazy). If I unplug the adapter before sleep, it seems to wakeup without

No observed problems with backlight or anything else either, but I
haven't been stress testing anything.

Good work, Ben!  I owe you a beer next time you're in Austin! :)
