For KDE, we've used system-suspend and system-suspend-hibernate, so that the 
latter can fall back to the former if the theme doesn't have both. (Because 
essentially they're both "go to sleep" icons.)
I would love to see this scheme to be adopted, as I find it to be a nice 
mixture between flexibility and not requiring too much from 3rd party theme 

Also, we used system-restart instead of system-reboot, but that's more likely 
just a matter of taste and a question of "who will need to adapt their icon

Seconded. With all three of XFCE, GNOME and KDE using those icons, we should 
really get them into the standard.
