[gpm] german translations wrong

Hi, the german translations in the context menu are wrong. These are no
spelling mistakes or something, but logic errors:

Everywhere in the preferences
Hibernate translates to "Ruhemodus"
Suspend translates to "Stromsparmodus"

In the context menu whereever
Hibernate translates to "Tiefschlafmodus"
Suspend translates to "Ruhemodus"

As you can see this is pretty confusing.
I've three suggestions:

1. I would translate to "Tiefschlafmodus" where hibernate is meant.
(For not-german-speakers: This means "deep sleep")

2. I would translate to "Ruhemodus" where suspend is meant, cause
"Stromsparmodus" means powersave, and that is what gpm is doing without
any settings. And if you put your computer in powersave mode, you think
you can stay using it, but when it suspends you can't use it.

3. I would add in braces "Suspend-to-Disk" and "Suspend-to-RAM" because
the non-english translations can mean anything.


PS: I added the changes I made.
