For some reason I haven't been receiving topic alerts either and in the past I had been re-visiting this thread frequently to find replies.
Why wouldn't I want to share my findings. It was in fact quite obvious once I gave it a bit of thought. I had forgotten the fact that much of iPhone is based on OS X 10.4 and so stuff that works on 10.4 should work on an iPhone theoretically. From there I started looking at the possibility of using the IOKIt. That's where the answer lies. However this really isn't what I wanted to do originally, and that was to wake the phone up (which still is undiscovered - and the proposed 'solution' doesn't quite achieve that). The IOKit method only prevents the phone from sleeping and due to this it consumes extra battery life.
All you need is in this page here:
You essentially require:
However like I said, this only prevents the phone from dozing off and so is not an ideal solution. I personally believe sparking the phone off from sleep, too, can probably be done via the IOKit but for that to work. This however won't work the moment Apple releases the SDK as you need to be root to be able to do this - and according to what I've read, root access is impossible with the SDK.
