Bug#720704: gnome-settings-daemon: Does not suspend when power button pressed

Package: gnome-settings-daemon
Version: 3.8.4-1
Severity: normal

I have the power button configured to perform a suspend on my Samsung
NP900X3C because lid detection doesn't work properly on this model. But
since upgrading to GNOME 3.8 pressing the power button only turns off
the display. I think this is for the same reason as #704272; browsing
the source it looks as if g-s-d is asking logind to suspend. The
gnome-shell maintainers seem to be anticipating a delay before systemd
supports suspend and have reverted gnome-shell to use upower, so please
could a similar interim fix be applied to g-s-d if an updated systemd is
still some way off.
