I discovered /usr/lib/hal/scripts/linux/hal-system-power-suspend-linux.
I can either hack that directly (yuck); however, I see I can also
resurrect my old /etc/acpi/sleep.sh script.
But the way it's set up, if I provide /etc/acpi/sleep.sh, I also have to
know how my system is suspended, which isn't user-friendly. I think it
would be nice to provide pre- and post-suspend hooks instead. Thoughts?
