[p4] p4d -- able to survive long "laptop sleep"?

I'm setting up p4 for somebody whose primary hardware
platform will be an apple powerbook.

p4d will be fun from init.d at startup.

The powerbook will sleep whenever the screen is closed.
Will this cause any kind of known problems for p4d?

I noticed that the postgresql database couldn't handle
this... when the screen was opened and the powerbook
woke up, the server would notice that it had been
unconconcious for a long time, assume it had gone
insane, and exit.
