gnome-power-manager actually uses whatever backend is available, for
example hibernate. Sometimes some minor adjustments of the hal scripts
can be necessary.
ah, thank you for that hint.  I found the hal scripts in
/usr/share/hal/scripts/hal-system-power-*, arethese the ones used by

it looks as though the hibernate and suspend scripts automatically
callshbernate if it's installed.  I guess I should figure out a way to
get the script to check whether the running kernel is actually
suspend2-enabled before running the hibernate command. if the kernel
just has vanilla suspend, hibernate can't deal with it.

what's the relationship betweenthe hal scripts and the ones in
/etc/acpi?  does the inital keypress generate a HAL event, which is
then sometimes sent to acpi andsometimes not?  I find the arrangement
a little complicated.

...all of which is taking me a ways away from my inital concern about
the hibernate button., but it's nonetheless interesting....
