[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#603325: suspend and hibernate options disabled with no apparent recourse

Package: xfce4-power-manager
Version: 0.8.5-1+b1


As the subject says, these two options are simply disabled on my laptop,
which can actually hibernate just fine with 'sudo hibernate'.

(I actually had that action bound to my laptop's power key via
/etc/acpi/powerbtn.sh.dpkg-bak, but I noticed it stopped working,
and suspected something in X was at fault...)

Googling indicates xfce4-power-manager might need something like policykit
to figure this out, but this isn't properly expressed anywhere, neither on
runtime (no explanatory or warning messages) nor in the package dependencies
or documentation.

Please fix this. TIA.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
