This is the “inhibit” system. Unfortunately, yes, the application name
(and the reason) is not displayed. Usually it's something like a media
player but it might be anything else using the dbus inhibit interface.

Well, then that's not xfpm fault. xfpm just asked upower to sleep (even
though some application asked not too). Then it failed, but that's out
of xfpm hands.

like that tone, to be honest. It didn't exactly make me feel like
working on your problems.
