Description of problem:
Suspending the computer through the power button icon in the top bar of Gnome doesn't work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Easy to test.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click the power button icon in the Gnome top bar
2. Press Alt on the keyboard to enable suspend feature
3. Click the suspend button
The computer and monitor move into power saving mode for a few seconds before reactivating.
Computer and monitor should remain in power saving mode.
Suspending works as expected when activated through the automatic power saving feature. That is, Gnome is able to automatically move the computer into a power saving state after a time period specified in the system settings. Also, issuing the command 'systemctl suspend' from a terminal window or through the Alt+F2 dialog box succesfully moves the computer into a power saving state.
