Description Matthias Clasen 2005-09-28 17:00:29 UTC
I think as part of integrating gnome-power-manager, we should look into
adding a suspend option to the logout dialog.

Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-09-28 17:06:19 UTC
I don't know... It's always sort of struck me as a strange place for an option
that doesn't log you out.

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2005-09-28 17:11:49 UTC
Then let me rephrase this: We should make sure suspend is available via the ui
if it works.

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2005-10-14 03:08:36 UTC
Ubuntu has it

Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-01-11 21:32:56 UTC
Maybe we can make this a menu item in system.

Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2006-02-09 05:58:33 UTC
The panel shutdown dialog already has code to show a suspend button if 
gdm thinks suspend is supported. Ray tells me we need a gdm patch from
Ubuntu to make this work.

Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2006-02-14 19:22:25 UTC
We switched to dialog-less Suspend menuitem in test3. 
We'll have to see if the public outcry forces us to revert that 
and go back to a Suspend button next to the Restart and Shutdown

Comment 9 Matthias Clasen 2006-02-14 19:23:46 UTC
One data point in favor of going back to the dialog is that
suspend does not actually work on any of the test machines we installed today,
but the menuitem is still "Suspend", not "Shutdown", because gdm thinks that
suspend works...

If the public out cries, they can do it on a new bug :-).  Let's close this one.
