I tried to user hibernate from gpm but it didn't work. I got the following

But running /usr/share/hal/scripts/hal-system-power-hibernate manually did
work. Also suspend (-to-ram) did work.
This behaviour appears with two laptops (IBM Thinkpad X20 and Asus S5200N).

Do you still see this behaviour ? Also is the user added to the powerdev 
group (And dbus reloaded afterwards) ?

I had this same problem recently, whilst installing Etch onto an AMD64 laptop. I installed hal and hal-device-manager 0.5.8.1-9, and gnome-power-manager 2.14.3-3+b.

The solution is to install the package hal-device-manager. hal (which gnome-power-manager itself depends on) _suggests_ hal-device-manager, but gnome-power-manager depends on it to function.

The dependency list for gnome-power-manager should be changed to reflect  this IMO.

I experienced the exact same behaviour as Philip Frei. On my system,
hal-device-manager was already installed. The installation of
acpi-support-base made gnome-power-manager's hibernate feature work.

The suspend function still triggered a "Suspend Problem - Your computer
failed to suspend" error message.

gnome-power-manager should probably depend on these two packages.
