Description of problem:
My desktop machine suspects and resumes perfectly.  I can't see any problems from a user's perspective.  However, upon resuming, I often hear the creepy "gpm-suspend-failure.wav" sound and see a notification bubble reporting:

    Suspend Problem

    Your computer failed to suspend.
    Check the help file for common problems.

The only "problem" I can see is that gnome-power-manager thinks there was a problem when there wasn't one!  :-)

Peeling back the curtain a bit more, I can see a sequence of suspend and resume hook actions logged in "/var/log/pm-suspend.log".  Everything in that log appears fine except for the 60sysfont resume action.  That fails in exactly the manner reported in bug #236394.  However, I see the bug #236394 issue after *all* suspend/resume cycles, whereas only some of them post the "Suspend Problem" notification I'm describing here.  Therefore, I suspect that bug #236394 is not causing this issue, at least not deterministically.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Suspend using keyboard sleep button, "pm-suspend", panel menu, whatever.
2. Resume

Actual Results:
Creepy "gpm-suspend-failure.wav" plays and a notification bubble is posted (falsely) claiming that the computer failed to suspend.

Expected Results:
Suspend/resume worked just fine, so no error sound or notification should have appeared.

Additional info:
It's hard for me to tell which layer this is coming from, so we might need to push this further down the software power management stack.  Relevant package versions include:

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 10:27:31 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:

The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-06-16 22:27:38 EDT
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008. 
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not 
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we 
are closing this bug. 

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version 
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
