yeah, this whole area has been a mess of late. ;( Sorry. 

I really hope we have it all a lot better in f19. 

The f18 double suspend was something I saw here from time to time, but
could never track down. Some folks mentioned it was a systemd bug, but
I never could nail it down enough to report it. ;( 

So, all the issues you note I think are in xfce4-power-manager and
systemd interaction. In f18, xfce4-power-manager didn't know anything
about systemd or talk to it really in any way, so if systemd was set to
handle those events, it just did and xfce4-power-manager didn't do
anything. Since you have told it not to do that, xfce4-power-manager
should be handling them, so it sounds like a bug there. 

In f19 xfce4-power-manager now queries systemd correctly, so it can ask
systemd to suspend, or whatever. There's no longer any need to tweak
systemd settings, xfce4-power-manager inhibits where it needs to. Also
in f18 xfce4-power-manager used upower to do the suspend/hibernate, but
it no longer does that in f19, so it uses systemd instead. 

So, I guess short term I can try and figure out whats going wrong with
xfce4-power-manager in f18... and perhaps you could try a f19 live
media and see if the problems persist there?
