Package: xfce4-power-manager
Version: 1.4.4-4
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I suspend my laptop by closing the lid.  When I resume, by opening the
lid, I then unlock the screen and I am greeted with a dialog saying:

  Authentication is required for suspending the system.

I can cancel this without any issues, except a notification saying:

  Power manager

  GDBus.Error.org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Method call timed out

This is slightly better than the situation before my last reboot,
where the laptop re-suspended as soon as it had resumed after opening
the lid.  I then had to press the Fn key to get it to resume again.

I can see that xfce4-power-manager has not been updated for over a
year on my system.  Therefore, I assume that xfce4-power-manager
hasn't been updated to deal with recent changes in systemd.  Or should
I file this bug against systemd?
