[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#680443: Prevents shutdown with useless error message

Package: xfce4-power-manager
Version: 1.0.11-2
Severity: normal


today I tried to suspend my laptop as usual but got this message:

  "An application is currently disabling the automatic sleep, doing this
  action now may damage the working state of this application, are you
  sure you want to hibernate the system?" yes/no

I couldn't see any application running that may want to do that, but
besides, it is *ridiculous* that I am not told which application is
preventing suspend.

I then tried pressing 'Yes', the screen locked, but the laptop did not

Now try imagining this situation, say, when you need to leave home to
run to the train station, with your laptop, planning to continue your
work on the train.

Severity is set to normal, but there should be a new category for this
sort of things. You should not let users like me pick the name for it,
