Do people here tend to suspend their zaurus or shutdown? So far I have been suspending but I have noticed that I get problems when I remove devices (usb and compact flash) when it is suspended and then try to wake it up without them.

I have to take some of the devices out as I am moving and I can't have them all hanging off it as I will just break something.

Suspend...

Take a look at the scripts in /etc/apm and see if you can add something to turn them on/off at suspend time (I did this with the internal wifi on my SL6000 - if on, it turns off prior to suspending and sets a flag to turn it on again when resuming, otherwise it dies).

Or maybe get used to removing things before suspending so that they are recognised as removed...?

You could just software-eject the card / USB stuff before suspend.
YOu can leave it connected (e.g. a CF card), and either you take it out while the Z is off, then it will not do any harm on next turnon.
Or you leave it in, then it will be recognized and re-mounted on next poweron.

The more elegant solution would fo course be to add the respective eject commands to the apm scripts, as suggested by karlto.
