g-p-m appears to have done so for the last 3 years.

Does network manager have a d-bus method that we can use to query its
current state?  If so, might be better to see if network manager is
already asleep, and do nothing on suspend/resume if that is the case.

Also, email referenced  in the patch was from last March -- has d-bus
been fixed since then?
