Macs have no suspend key, and if you use an external keyboard it's quite inconvenient to look for Fn+F4 on the laptop keyboard.

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.

What? Are you serious? Gnome won't suspend a laptop when you close the lid without your patch? Seriously, please tell me I misunderstood! Who deemed that functionality superfluous - it only works on every other OS out there...

You've misunderstood. Default behaviour is to suspend on lid close. However, that's disabled if you have an additional display connected.
