A couple of notes:
- OpenBSD supports hibernation via /usr/sbin/ZZZ or /usr/sbin/apm -Z
- on FreeBSD you might want to call /usr/sbin/acpiconf -s 3 for suspend for
consistency, /usr/sbin/zzz still supports APM but I doubt there is any
APM-supporting hardware left
- on FreeBSD you can check for suspend/hibernate support by looking at the
hw.acpi.supported_sleep_state property through the sysctl API, see sysctl(3)[1]
and acpi(4)[2]


Also the long term plan still is to use a DBus-actiavted helper instead of
sudo? Where should this live, both xfce4-session and xfce4-power-manager need
to make use of it but either one depending on the other would probably not be
nice. People run Xfce without xfpm and and xfpm is used outside Xfce.
