Comment(by mavrothal):

 Replying to [comment:3 pgf]:
 > please try the command "sudo rfkill block wifi" in place of clicking the
 "extreme" power management box.  (use "sudo rfkill unblock wifi" to undo.)
 the OLPC version of sugar 0.84 does the rfkill in response to the Network
 control panel's "Radio" checkbox.  the "Extreme" checkbox is gone in that

 I guess this explains the behaviour in Sugar and has to do with the
 Control panel coding. However, in Gnome we have the same behaviour. Eg the
 XO-1 goes through suspend and the wifi stays on.[[BR]]
 BTW the original logs were missing somehow the power.trace log from the
 Gdefaul folder. The new gnome.logs.tar.gz attachment is from the same
 test. eg one cycle of inactivity and wakeup by user input followed by one
 power button cycle
