Oh please.

I've never seen a laptop that will not cause a poweroff in hardware if
the operating system isn't doing its job.

This is also not a critical issue. If gnome-power-manager were to go
berserk and do the equivalent of "rm -rf /", or "kill -9" on all
processes on the system, or something similar, that would be a critical
bug in the "makes the whole system break" sense. As it is,
gnome-power-manager just *doesn't* do something it's supposed to do.
It's not even close to being critical in that sense.

I agree that it's probably a problem, and that it'd be good if we were
to fix it before the release; but anything above "important" strikes me
as unnecessary severity inflation.

(on a more personal note, why oh why would you ever want the system to
suspend when you close the lid? That's what a suspend button is for. If
my laptop is compiling something, I do *not* want it to suspend when I
close the lid, thankyouverymuch. Oh well)

Copyshops should do vouchers. So that next time some bureaucracy
requires you to mail a form in triplicate, you can mail it just once,
add a voucher, and save on postage.
