The UpdateExtra.app is located in /Extra. To run it either double click on it or type "open /Extra/UpdateExtra.app/" in the terminal.
I've been testing out some things on my mini (updated the source code compile in xcode 3.1 / recompiled it and installed) and it seams to be working fine when I have the machine set to 1 minute for display of and sleep. I doubt that this actually fixed it, but if anyone wants to try, I've attached a new build (which should be almost the same as the old one).

The earlier one had some keys swapped around which I think are corrected in the later one (due to a differently built kext being in use). Either way the worst case scenario should be that #, ~, `, Â¬ and maybe \ and | are jumbled up along with # (alt-3), â‚¬ (alt-4) and Â¢ (alt-2) IIRC.

Well, you do NOT want to delete that kext from /System/Library/Extensions. The only one you should have deleted was the one located in /Extra/Mini9Ext/

Well, I guess I have broken my OSX install on this STEC SSD. In an effort to remove all other variables, on Saturday I'll do a fresh re-install of OSX on this same STEC SSD and retest SLEEP with DellEFI 1.1b5t2.

Well, no luck for me on the latest release - the first install totally crashed my installation - I wasn't able to boot my mini anymore - after re-installing everything, the installation went smoothly - however closing the lid of the mini freezes it - it doesn't really go to sleep I guess - nothing works anymore, no mouse, nothing.
