Hardware button no longer suspends laptop when locked

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

I have the power button on my laptop set to suspend the laptop. When the laptop is open and unlocked, it works fine. When the screensaver is active or the lid closed (I have lock on lid-close, but see #428115) the button doesn't appear to do anything. This works in Jaunty and worked in Karmic up until the last week or so.

Expected behaviour is that triggering the hardware button should always suspend the computer. It's quite handy for when I've shut the lid because I paused my work and then want to suspend to move elsewhere.

when power button activate GUI shutdown selection. Only shutdown works. selection Hibernate or suspend does not do anything. Also, when closing lid system does not suspend nor does it hibernate even if actions are selected in gnome-power-manage.

Is this still an issue in the latest versions of Ubuntu?

I am closing the Karmic bugtask because Karmic is EOL. The main bug is still open.

With quantal I still have problems, like jabastien above. Pressing the power button pops up a dialog where only the shutdown button works. The suspend button does nothing. When I pick suspend from the menu in the top right corner the computer will enter suspend mode. Ideally I could set the power button to immediately suspend but there doesn't seem to be an option for this.
