I see, np. I'm just puzzled because after a cold reset (pulling
battery out) poodle is acting as if powered off and does not restart
Apparently we cannot reach this state again after boot.
FYI the modern zaurus (corgi and spitz) do
suspend/resume/poweroff/restart flawlessy so it's only this machine
failing poweroff (and maybe collie, no idea).
