Bug Description

I don't like the way suspend problem reported in Ubuntu, as shown in the attachment (supplied in a later submission):

Suspend Problem
  Your computer failed to suspend.
  Check the help file for common
  problems.

That's it! I really wish that this applet provides, at least, a button saying "Detail...", through which, a window can be displayed to show the problem detail. I think, the applet above is reporting a problem that was also recorded somewhere in dmesg output, right? If it is so, I would suggest that the portion of dmesg output that indicates the problem can be seen through the button "Detail..." above. In the current approach, the output may try to be as "friendly" as possible to the laymen in computer by hiding the "Greeks" from them. But as a power user, it's hard for me to figure out what went wrong. I hate parsing through dmesg output (you know how long it is, and it's like finding a needle in the haystack).

This time I just don't know what package to associate the problem with. Sorry about this.

I'm referring to Ubuntu 7.04 here. I suppose 7.10 also still behaves the same, right?

The message in question comes from gnome-power-manager, assigning it to that package.

Changed in gnome-power-manager:

This is probably a dup of bug #93281 (or the other way around). Can someone decide and set it accordingly?
