Package: acpi-support
Version: 0.140-5+deb7u1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

* What led up to the situation?

My power button is configured (probably using GNOME settings a longer time
ago) to cause suspend to RAM. Pressing it again makes the computer wake
up. That worked well until upgrade to version 0.140-5+deb7u1 of the acpi
packages a few days ago.

With the new package version, the computer is shut down immediately
after wake up from suspend to RAM. The graphical user interface is
killed and on the console I can see "Power butten pressed" and
"The system is going down for halt now".

This can cause loss of data as open applications are killed.

* What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
* What was the outcome of this action?

Downgrading the acpi packages
