suspend option in the logout dialog
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:14 EST
I think as part of integrating gnome-power-manager, we should look into
adding a suspend option to the logout dialog.
I don't know... It's always sort of struck me as a strange place for an option
that doesn't log you out.
Then let me rephrase this: We should make sure suspend is available via the ui
if it works.

Ubuntu has it
Maybe we can make this a menu item in system.
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.
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
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
If the public out cries, they can do it on a new bug :-). Let's close this one.
