Sure, I appreciate you don't like the name, but *please* don't suggest
different names for something already quite complicated in lots of
different desktops and tools. I've spent ages trying to clarify the mess
of nomenclature, and really don't want to have to do it all over again.

As for "safe suspend", it is really safer than suspend, as the usual
warnings about "if the battery runs out your work is lost" don't apply.
