I'm arguing that there should be a "suspend" command [1], that does the
right thing for apm and acpi, and is consolehelper enabled
so regular users at the console can run it. I added a comment to
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=121061 suggesting
this a while back.

Once we have that it's trivial to connect it to the battstat applet
right away with only config file changes, and we could pretty easily add
it to the logout dialog too with some hacking.

Kind of close to the deadline, though I'm honestly pretty disappointed
we flunked on fixing this, since it seems pretty much trivial and would
be a big usability benefit. Though on laptops in principle we have the
"just close the lid" approach which isn't terrible.


[1] however we have to think of a name other than "suspend,"
unfortunately, since suspend is a bash builtin
