SuSE has elaborate scripts for pm-utils, with config in
/etc/pm/config, and the helper functions for powersave in
/usr/lib/powersave include suspend2.

What I'd like to do is to interpret the powerbutton push as a command
to use suspend2, and then it will do whatever hibernate sees as

Apparently, the old scripts mentioned on the 'net for /etc/acpi are no
longer used, and config for acpi refers to clients for interpretation
of actions.  Then /etc/powersave says it's also deprecated in favor of

So what's the right way to integrate suspend2 with SUSE 10.2 and make
it interpret power events such as button push via calling hibernate?
