> 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?

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.

I know, I contributed that patch. But I don't think gnome-tweak-tool is the right place for something that all Mac OS X users expect.

Heh, that's the first thing I sought to disable on the Mac I got and there's nowhere to do so (had to install a kernel patch thing). They have no switch for it. Having it in g-t-t is orders of magnitude better than installing something which twiddles the kernel.

Oh, I totally agree that g-t-t is better than kernel patching. :)
