Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187191
No suspend option from login screen
Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:50:16 EDT
Description of problem:
Suspend and hibernate work fine for all users, but there should be a way to
suspend a laptop from the login screen so the computer can be put to sleep

screen shows garbage from which there is no recovery and requires a reboot.
GNOME Power Manager does not yet handle the no-logged in use-cases as it's

driver?). I would create a bug with GDM and if it is an issue with X it will be
