Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

Outside discussions of whether "suspend" should be called "sleep" or "sleep" should be called "suspend", there needs to be consistency.

Specifically in Power Management Preferences, both words "sleep" and "suspend" are used and mean the same thing. Under Actions is "Put computer to sleep when inactive for:" while the drop-down selection boxes have "Suspend" as an option.
