I suspect it might be a Fedora issue as the option to suspend in
gnome-power-manager are gone too (you can do nothing or shutdown for
most of the options).So I'm not sure if they're getting smarter and
only enabling the option for known working configs (I think my Dell
D620 has issues) or whether is borked for development in general at
the moment.
