1) There are two scripts to suspend from console: "pm-suspend" and 
"pm-suspend-hybrid" , both in package pm-utils.

When I suspend using xfpm using the notification area icon, I have found 
that the "pm-suspend" script is called by default .
That script does not work on my machine, but if I rename 
pm-suspend-hybrid to pm-suspend the suspend process using xfpm works again.

But renaming a file is not a user friendly way of selecting the suspend 

Maybe it would be possible to allow the user to select the suspend 
method (pm-suspend or pm-suspend-hybrid) in the applet, is there only 
one kind of dbus suspend call available?
If so maybe we should notify this to upower package mantainer.

2) This is a wish. I would like to setup the xfpm to suspend my computer 
when plugged and hybernate when running on batteries. Is this possible?
