One annoying issue with using the power button to suspend is that there is no 
option if you really want to shut the machine down.

There are a huge number of mistakes you can make in Linux sys-admin or 
development work that make it impossible to login to a Linux machine and 
require booting with init=/bin/bash for recovery.  It's really annoying to 
have to unplug the laptop, turn it upside down, and remove the battery to 
cause a reboot in such situations.
