    Default hibernate suspend works on CLI, not from GUI

    I hope somebody can help...I've spent most of the day trying to fix this already!!

    I got a new laptop and installed Opensuse 11.0 on it. The laptop is a Dell Studio. I am trying to get hibernate and suspend working from GUI programs, like kpowersave. After spending much of the day searching forums and google, I've learned this:

    The following work perfectly from the command line (as root):
    pm-hibernate
    pm-suspend
    s2ram -f

    The following do NOT work as root OR user:
    powersave -U
    powersave -u
    KDE or Gnome GUI programs don't work

    When I try powersave at the commandline, it just seems to hang until I hit Ctrl-C. The GUI programs have no result. The system continues running as if nothing happened.

    My understanding is that the problem is related to HAL or PolicyKit but I don't know how they work to try to debug them. The config files seem fine and it is a fresh install (with all updates installed).

    If anyone has any suggestions, let me know! Your help is truly appreciated!
