Laptop sleeps again after resume (only on lid open)

Bug Description

When action on lid close in xfce4-power-manager is set to "Sleep", the laptop correctly sleeps when the lid is closed.

When the lid is opened, the laptop resumes briefly, then sleeps again. I can trigger a resume successfully either by pressing the power button or by closing and reopening the lid.

This is a regression from 13.04 where suspend/resume worked correctly.

If I sleep by pressing the "Suspend" button in the XFCE "Log Out" menu the laptop sleeps and resumes successfully and doesn't sleep twice.

This is probably related to bug #1222021.

This bug was marked duplicate of bug 1222021, however that bug refers to the behaviour when a laptop lid is closed, this bug is about the behaviour when the lid is opened again.

While the root cause may well be the same the bug itself is not the same as that reported in bug 1222021.

I've got the same bug since updating to 13.10.

When killing xfce4-power-manager, the laptop sleeps/resumes normally (only once).
However, it shouldn't sleep at all when xfce4-power-manager is not running.
So bug 1222021 actually is causing this issue because something else than xfce4-power-manager is trying to put the laptop to sleep but instead the sleep command gets put into queue and is executed after the first resume from sleep.
