If xfce4-session is running then yes, i just use the shutdown DBus 
interface on the session, because in this way the session will cleanly 
shutdown, you can send DBus shutdown message of type 2.

dbus-send --print-reply --session --dest=org.xfce.SessionManager 
/org/xfce/SessionManager org.xfce.Session.Manager \
uint32:2 boolean:true

For suspend/hibernate i have the DBus interfaces in xfpm on 
org.freedesktop.PowerManagement (standard), but probably i should add 
shutdown interface as well that uses the xfce4-session if it is running 
or internally if not. (if this can help you i can do it right now).
