Package: acpi-support-base
Version: 0.141-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

as it stands, /usr/share/acpi-support/policy-funcs:CheckPolicy() will
not prevent scripts like /etc/acpi/sleep_suspendbtn.sh from acting
when logind or mate-power-manager is running. logind is already provided
by systemd in Debian and configured to handle power hotkeys by default;
mate-power-manger is not in Debian yet, but packaged externally, on its
way in and some Debian users are already using it.

I'm currently running systemd + Mate and in the a bit absurd situation
of having the system suspend *three* times after one keypress in default
configuration. :-)  Another issue is making Mate + logind work together,
but preventing a fallback action from acpi-support is probably a good
first start to resolve this.
