Default F-16 suspends my *desktop* after 30 minutes at the gdm , making it impossible to ssh in

Hi All,

The subject more or less says it all. When I startup my desktop machine (which thus
is always on AC), and leave it at the gdm screen it will suspend after being left
alone for 30 minutes. This is not good, since I only leave it powered on when I
intend to access it remotely.

I would like to suggest to change the default power policy to never suspend
while on AC power. Another reason for this is that suspend simply does not work
on this (very recent) desktop machine. And I can honestly say I've never seen a
desktop machine where suspend worked with Linux, so suspending desktop
machines by default seems like a bad idea.

Note I've also filed a bug for this:

But since this more of a policy thing then really a bug I thought it would be
good to discuss this on the list.
