Thanks James, 

I actually already have all of this. Aside from the power button not
working, I have the issue that the if I wake the system up (from the
power button as that is all that works). ACPI suspend to RAM is
definitely enabled, and I have set it to accept any input as a wake up

I need to restart the lirc daemon and then Mythtv as well. I tried using
the hibernate scripts to shutdown myth, then restart lirc before
restarting myth on wakeup, but it didn't work.

success on older kernels, so I will try this. I have posted to the LIRCC
list as well, in case it is a bug upstream.. but the list appears dead
(3 mails in 24 hours)
