I believe that has no influence on my main problematic case:
1- the user hits the power-button because (s)he wants to hibernate the
2- each and every user logged in with Gnome gets to process the request via
   its own gnome-power-manager, isn't it wonderful?

No, the problem is not that g-p-m allows users to do things they shouldn't
be allowed to do (I use social-engineering to solve such problems anyway).

I mean it's good that g-p-m has those things for people in different
situations, but they don't help me.

Will it really work?  Is g-p-m really going to use hibernate rather than
some other method?  Is that documented somewhere?
