I scanned that through, but seemed it's a bit different issue (laptop
not working if kill switch is on). My laptop works ok if I shut down
the wifi, but doesn't return from suspend correctly (whether or not
the kill switch is on or off). It forces the kill switch on when
returning from suspend and renders the whole suspend unusable since
only boot will cure it.

If someone has a tip how to revert nvidia-glx back to 2.6.20-12
version, I'd be glad. That way I could revert my nvidia-glx and use
suspend with a bit older kernel version (where the ipw3945 works too).
