[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#738294: needs to inhibit systemd handling of lid close and power button

Package: xfce4
Version: 4.10.1
Severity: normal

In xfce4-power-manager, I have the system configured to suspend
when the laptop lid is closed, or when the power button is pressed.

When booted with systemd, closing the lid causes the system to suspend.
Opening the lid then causes it to resume, followed immediately by it
suspending again. I can then press the power button to resume.

If I press the power button while the system is running, it does a hard
shutdown with no prompting about eg, data loss (bug priority may be too

FWIW, ck-list-sessions does list a login session.

I am using xfce, with lightdm or gdm3 (doesn't matter), and systemd.
Basically, the standard Debian jessie desktop confguration, except
that my window manager is xmonad (started by xfce4-session-manager
and unlikely to be relevant).

Per #717661, the solution to this seems to be for some long-running process
(such as xfce itself) using systemd-inhibit. I find I need to pass
