This is why I didn't use wake. Wake has been used in the past for resume
from standby, resume from hibernate and resume from suspend.

The backwards action name isn't as important for end users IMO. The user
will only ever click a "Suspend" button, not a "Resume" button :-)

Thanks for all your comments btw.
