A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
But how do I suspend a laptop when it has an attached display? Closing the lid won't do, and I don't think I can log out first, can't I?
GNOME 3.6 released

Are there actually any laptops that don't have a suspend key?

In all fairness GNOME 3.6 accepted my patch that lets me just close the lid, but you need gnome-tweak-tool to access it.

There's a setting for overriding the default behaviour on lid-close with external monitors attached:
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power lid-close-suspend-with-external-monitor true
Or, if you prefer, gnome-tweak-tool has a switch for this.
