 +===== Notes =====
 +Was tested with Debian Squeeze. There are a few issues with the wireless card upon resume.
 +This can be worked around by reloading the driver: <​code>​modprobe -r brcm80211 ; modprobe brcm80211</​code>​
 +You can set that command to run whenever you resume, however it is done on your distro, on Debian Squeeze:
 +<​code>​
 +$ cat /​usr/​lib/​pm-utils/​sleep.d/​53brcm8021 ​
 +#!/bin/sh
 +# reloads the bc43xx driver upon resuming
 +
 +. "​${PM_FUNCTIONS}"​
 +
 +suspend_nm()
 +{
 + return 0
 +}
 +
 +resume_nm()
 +{
 + `/​sbin/​modprobe -r brcm80211 ; /​sbin/​modprobe brcm80211` > /dev/null
 +}
 +
 +case "​$1"​ in
 + hibernate|suspend)
