    Add the following line to /etc/polkit-default-privs.local:
    Code:
    org.freedesktop.login1.suspend-multiple-sessions yes
    and run:
    Code:
    sudo /sbin/set_polkit_default_privs
    You shouldn't have to enter the root password then if you want to suspend with more than one user logged in.
