Bug#755120: mate-power-manager,systemd: suspend happens twice

Package: mate-power-manager,systemd
Version: 1.8.0+dfsg1-3+b1,208-6
Severity: normal

When I put the lid down to suspend my Thinkpad X220, the system
suspends.  When I open the lid, the system resumes, and then suspends

I believe this happens because mate-power-manager and systemd both
attempt to suspend the machine.  One of those packages needs to be
responsible for it, and the other needs to not be involved.  However,
systemd might want to take control of suspending the machine when
mate-power-manager is not involved, such as when the lid is closed at
the lightdm screen, so that suspend still works in such a case.

My mate-power-manager settings indicate that when the lid is closed,
whether on AC power or battery, the system is to be suspended.  The
appropriate package should honor these settings, however I may set them.

I trust the maintainers can assign this bug to the appropriate package,
or clone additional bugs to apportion the responsibilities between them.

This machine is on sid.
