What you oserve is perhaps a conflict between kpowersave+powersaved 
and eeepc-acpi-scripts. I suppose they both try to suspend the machine 
and something fails.

The scripts already detect running powersaved and do nothing when the 
lid is closed. Perhaps this check can be added to suspend.sh too.

I use gnome-power-manager and it is configured to suspend on lid 
close, which works (as lid.sh detects the running power manager).

It also tries to suspend when I press Fn+F1, which sort of works -- 
the machiine suspends, then immediately resumes, then suspends again, 
this time waiting for power button to be pushed before resuming.

I've noted the problem in suspend.sh in the TODO. Shall be fixed
