thinkpad sleep suspend fn buttons do not work without g-p-m

Bug Description

Binary package hint: acpi

xUbuntu daily-live 3-2 used as install media, updated to 3-3.
Thinkpad R50

When I attempt to use the FN+F4 (Suspend to RAM) or FN+F12 (Hibernate) buttons on my thinkpad, the device does not suspend to RAM or disk. In /var/log/acpid I can see the button events & scripts being called in /etc/acpi/, but nothing happens. If I install & start gnome-power-manager, I can use the suspend to ram/disk keys successfully. Note that the machine can successfully suspend to ram/disk by using the XFCE Quit ~> Suspend/Hibernate function without gnome-power-manager.

Confirmed. This is a bug in /etc/acpi/events/ibm-sleepbtn, which is configured to invoke /etc/acpi/ instead of /etc/acpi/ the former calls acpi_fakekey, the latter is what will trigger a sleep event when g-p-m is not listening.
