with every power management option I can think of, on idle I get 2.6 wakeups pre second in intervals of 45 seconds.

kernel is 2.6.39-pf2.

I really can't see the problem ( at least not on my system ).
what power management options do you use? can you list them for us?

I have an nvidia chip and the driver itself causes more wakeups than your entire system (even with the on-demand vblank)
