Personally, I kill all of Xorg upon waking (and restart lircd). I had 
been running into things that just didn't work correctly otherwise. In 
particular where LIRC was concerned, I found that everything was fine if 
I woke the machine within a few minutes of it sleeping, but longer waits 
would result in LIRC not responding. Something similar would happen with 
one of the connections the frontend uses to talk to the backend (I 
forget which one now.)

Of course, I set this up a long time ago. It could be that the frontend 
is now more tolerant of whatever timeout was causing this problem.
