No sleep button in edgy?

Bug Description

When using dapper, acpid would use acpi_fakekey and then gnome-power-manager would act according to it's settings. I no longer see the ability to set an action on pressing the suspend button (in my case, Fn-F4). acpid still calls acpi_fakekey and the keysym is passed on, but gnome-power-preferences and the keyboard shortcut dialogs have no ability that I could find to respond to the acpi_fakekey run.

Suspend itself works fine from the logout dialog, but the key not working now is a bit frustrating.

gnome-power-manager is set to ignore the sleep button by default.

You can check on this by running gconf-editor and looking at the "/apps/gnome-power-manager/action_button_suspend" key. It will probably say "nothing". Changing that to "suspend" should do what you want.

If it's set to ignore the sleep button by default, it really shouldn't be. There's no mechanism in the UI to alter it.
