Squeeze. What is current hibernation mechanism ==> pm-utils

So, the Debian-recommended way is (still) "pm-utils". I saw that pm-utils
depends on HAL, and thinking that the HAL will soon be the thing in the
past, so I went for the other route: hibernate with kernel patch, then
hibernate with uwusup. They all turned out to be dead ends.

What is not working for me? Anything & everything:

- suspend
- hibernation
- lid close
- power button to turn off computer
. . .

Huh? AFAIK, pm-utils never depended on HAL; it used to recommend it,
but it does not do this anymore.

You should give pm-hibernate another try.

Have you tried a kernel from experimental yet? And please make sure
that the acpi-support package is installed.

Mmm... you shouldn't care about the backend used by "gnome-power-manager"
or "pm-utils", that's up to developers. User (like us) only have to check
if "it works", and if doesn't, make some debug, testing and review the
logs to find out the culprit.

Nowadays "gnome-power-manager" seems to use DBus instad of HAL, though.

What happens when you trigger "suspend" or "hibernation"?

These are ACPI events. You mean you get no response when you run any of
those actions?
