Thanks to an unrelated tip from Stefan Monnier, I installed the
hibernate package, and created a file called
/etc/hibernate/scriptlets.d/local which contains the following. If you
want to use it, replace my initials (BW) with your own since the
hibernate namespace is global.

BwIbmAcpiStartSuspend() {
    # Turn off Ultrabay LED.
    IbmAcpiLed 4 off
    return 0 # this shouldn't stop suspending

BwIbmAcpiEndResume() {
    # Turn on Ultrabay LED.
    IbmAcpiLed 4 on
    return 0

BwIbmAcpiOptions() {
    if [ -d "$BW_IBM_ACPI_PROC" -a -z "$BW_IBM_ACPI_HOOKED" ]; then
        AddSuspendHook 12 BwIbmAcpiStartSuspend
        AddResumeHook 12 BwIbmAcpiEndResume

    return 0
