[clug] Laptop to go into suspend-to-ram.

I found that my biggest issue was not enable the Power saving options in
KDE. Once I had done that, the laptop would suspend when I closed the lid,
and restore when I opened it.

does generate an ACPI event as it currently blanks the screen (But does
nothing else)
