upower 0.99 dropped support for suspend.  It's now supposed to be provided
by systemd or something:

Commands like the following no longer work for instance which means Xfce
no longer supports suspend.
dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest="org.freedesktop.UPower" \
  /org/freedesktop/UPower org.freedesktop.UPower.Suspend

Does this update provide alternative dbus methods?  Or should upower be
downgraded to 0.9.x?
