Note that pm-suspend-hybrid is just suspending after taking a ram
snapshot for hibernation. So what you really means, I guess, is that
suspend fails while hibernation works, and that's an issue in your
kernel (or X drivers or something).

A quick look in dbus methods offered by upower shows that it only have
suspend() and hibernate(), yes.

Well, you can configure various options for when you're on AC and when
you're on battery in the settings interface.
