I've been playing interactively with the tunables, and completely
agree about how annoying is the auto suspend for the USB mouse :P.
I'll probably make all the others permanent.

Sounds really nice. I've never heard about the kernel and software you
mention, and after reading about them it sounds really interesting. Do
you have any reference (website/blog/wiki/whatever) with these
optimizations, apart from the Arch Wiki?
