What does the (sys)log say?

I know little about Gnome-specific power management (eew) but I do have:

antony@myung:~$ cat /etc/acpi/f12.sh

antony@myung:~$ cat /etc/acpi/events/f12
event=ibm/hotkey HKEY 00000080 0000100c

I have configured /etc/hibernate/common.conf as appropriate, but I have
an X31 which may be a little different.  Hopefully the above will get
you going.

ISTR that the graphical notification comes from tpb.

antony@myung:~$ find /etc/ -exec grep -H tpb {} \;
/etc/default/tpb:# set this option to 'true' if you want to start tpb
automatically after X has

antony@myung:~$ ps ax |grep tpb
30002 ?        Sl     0:00 /usr/bin/tpb -d
11924 pts/1    R+     0:00 grep tpb
antony@myung:~$ killall tpb

Look, no OSD!

antony@myung:~$ /usr/bin/tpb -d
