If you're using the apm -z command or zzz, they will be executed.  If
you use the physical sleep button, they will not.  Fixing this required
some API changes as the kernel can't run usermode scripts directly and
the button is handled by a kernel driver.

If you try 7.0 or -current, you should find this works for you.
