Tried it with holding Alt down.. it workd fine giving a POWER OFF option
instead of Suspend..

Filed the bug report:

The message says :
stopping /home
starting systemd syslog kernel log Buffer Bridge

I tried doing a Ctrl+Alt+Del at this point, it results in further few lines
like :
starting Logging Daemon
stopping /home
(3 more)

after a 8-10 sec delay after pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del, the reboot screen with
the fedora bubble got invoked..
