This is a bug. Can you try one more thing? Give me the exact output of:

  dbus-send --print-reply --system --dest=org.freedesktop.UPower
/org/freedesktop/UPower org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Get
string:org.freedesktop.UPower string:CanSuspend

As I understand it, it will be a "Suspend/Hibernate" hybrid. That is,
we go into suspend for a bit, and then go to hibernate after more time
has passed.

There is an option: hold down Alt.
