In my book, it's spelled "flawed".

Sadly, it's now required by the `gnome' virtual package (actually maybe
it's not required directly by `gnome' but by `gnome-desktop-environment' or
other virtual package that's required by `gnome').
So it's difficult not to install it, and it's also difficult to install it
but keep it disabled.

I have nothing about my users causing a hibernate or suspend on most of my
machines (except when hibernate or suspend doesn't work, of course),
especially if the user has physical access to the machine.
