I killed the consolekit support if there was an option to do so (IIRC
only gdm had that). So ck-list-sessions indeed doesn't work anymore.
There is a related systemd command for that (guess you'd know :P).

In any case, it should still suspend, as this setup is used in Fedora
(the no consolekit I mean) IIRC.

In GNOME 3.6 the way of suspending will change (use systemd
functionality; which is why a new systemd is needed), but suspending
should just work in 3.4 as well.

No clue what needs changing to make it work now. Thinking maybe
policykit or similar?

Yeah, I'm potentially breaking stuff on purpose. It is early in the
cycle and now we have enough time to figure out what needs changing to
work in a systemd-only environment.
