Hmmh, it seems I have some problems with that.
My brightness up/down seem to activate the “suspend” action.
In lshal -m it appears as:
13:19:12.586: computer_logicaldev_input_0 condition ButtonPressed =

The “hibernate” button doesn't work. It appears in lshal -m:
13:18:29.951: computer_logicaldev_input_4 condition ButtonPressed =
but not in xev

The “suspend” button does work.

The “power” doesn't work at all but it doesn't appear in lshal -m nor
xev so I guess you don't have a way to get it. I'll try to manage to
make it visible to X.

Works fine, as well as the scroll stuff. It'd be nice if the scroll part
worked even when the “menu” is not activated and one scrolls just over
the icon.

Binding the “suspend” button to “Ask” does bring up the xfce4-session
interface so this part works fine :)

I guess it's too late now for the “adaptative” DPMS stuff, and, I guess,
the “textual” battery plugin. But one thing which would be nice would be
to have the “inhibit” function present in the right-click menu, in the
systray icon.

Cheers, and thanks for the work
