Okay, I tested with those patches and got the same problems with the
resulting build.
I can't reproduce the hang on plugging in the AC with either
2.6.21-rc5-mm2 or the
build with the patches you sent.  The other problems are 100% reproducible.
I have some new details:

1.  Power always shows up as plugged in to AC.
2.  The lid button is non-operational for initiating a suspend.
3.  Suspending from the Gnome shutdown menu works.   Afterwards, the
lid button works for resuming from suspend.
4.  If I suspend, resume and then try to shutdown; when I see the
message "The machine will now halt" the power does not shut off.  That
is, the various buttons on my laptop stay lit up.  I am forced to
shutdown by holding down the power button for five seconds.

I hope this helps,
