Description of problem:
Packagit prevents my laptop to suspend or hibernate wihout giving any sign that
it does something (no icon on panel).
I stoped it from doing endless refreshing packages list. No icons on panel, and
then i tried to suspend. So came the message that saying it does something etc etc.

Are you running GNOME? I'm going to need a ton more details if you want me to debug this.

I had a related issue with pk silently blocking suspend. With the latest F9 updates it's no longer silent, you get a popup warning that suspend is being prevented by package kit. This is a lot better, but it still shouldn't be preventing suspend unless it's actively installing RPMs at the time.

Downloading RPMs to install, or background downloading package lists (which is what it was doing last time this happened to me), or analysing the package set to figure out if there are updates should never be enough to prevent the laptop suspending.

Thank you for your response. I will leave this open until 2009-04-06 in case you run in to something or the maintainer wishes this to remain open. If I hear nothing by then I will close this one.
