Following up.. I've noticed that tpb is working in some regard. Fn+F3
causes the screensaver to kick in. Fn+F5 toggles the wifi. These are
working as expected, but I'm still mystified as to why suspend and
hibernate aren't working. I can click the logout button and select
suspend and hibernate there -- that works.
I'm using XFCE if that helps.
