Description of problem:
Other bugs have pointed out that the battery applet's default suspend
command is /usr/bin/apm -s which doesn't work for ACPI systems.

I would also like to point out that it doesn't work for APM systems

Bug #1:  silent failure.  Should at least give some diagnostic results
to the user so you know that something went wrong.

Bug #2:  Testing "/usr/bin/amp -s" in a shell demonstrates the
problem, as it returns "apm: Operation not permitted".  Some other
command is required, OR, perhaps apm has its permissions set too

(it's possible to make it work by typing "sudo /usr/bin/amp -s")

Besides suggesting that these elements should be repaired for a better
"out of box" experience, can you suggest a specific workaround or fix?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot system with APM
2.  Try the suspend feature in the battery applet.  Doesn't work.
3.  Try the suspend command in a shell.  Doesn't work.
