Closing lid after standby causes standby after resume

Bug Description

I have my laptop set to auto standby when I close the lid. However, I am still in the habit of clicking the standby button before closing the lid. When I do this, after I resume and log in the system goes into standby again, I assume because it delays the first standby in order to fulfill the second standby requested when I close the lid.

While it is technically doing what I requested it to (standby twice), I would expect to only have to log in once to resume from standby, whether or not I've closed the lid.

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell Latitude E6400. If you need more information, let me know and I will add it.

Do you have a second desktop-environment installed? Like XFCE or LXDE? Because a second power manger (additional to the gnome-power-manager) could be the reason.

I reproduced the problem in a similar way:

->press standby keys on keyboard
->machine switches to lockscreen and doesn't do anything for approximately 4 seconds
-->while the lockscreen is visible I press the standby keys 3 more times
-->the delay of about 4 seconds passes by, system goes to standby
->press power button to wake up the computer
-->it wakes up to lockscreen and goes to standby after a second
--->this happens as often as you pressed standby keys initially, afterwards you get to unlock ubuntu und continue your business
