"failed to suspend session"

I am running xfce with xubuntu 12.04 on a Thinkpad T61 with xdm.

When I select "suspend" from the user/logout menu I get:
"failed to suspend session" "not authorized" 

In the Power Manger menu on "When laptop lid is closed" I can only choose
"nothing" or "Lock screen", there is no "suspend" or "hibernate".

Any ideas, what is wrong?
