Hi Everyone - Sending this on behalf of John Lea, desktop design lead.

==============================================

Currently Ubuntu contains two separate sleep functions, suspend and
hibernate.  This choice confuses users and is a un-necessary complication to
'sleeping' the computer.  The proposed change is to combine both 'suspend'
and 'hibernate' into a single 'sleep' function.  When the user presses
'sleep', the computer should both suspend and hibernate simultaneously.  The
computer remains suspended for a set period of time (e.g. 30min) or until
the battery charge falls below a set level.  At the point the suspend state
is discarded, and if  the user wakes the computer after this point their
state is restored from hibernate.  However if the user wakes the computer
before the suspend state is discarded, the computer is restored from
'suspend' and the 'hibernate' state is discarded.

==============================================

Cheers,
Jason
