This being reraised made me think about why, the other day, I *did*
want user suspend. Sometimes I just want a quick way to:

  * Shut off all network connections.
  * Stop any noise (except configured alarms)
  * Have the screen locked
  * Not have to save my position
  * Be able to resume quickly

This isn't "suspend" in a power sense, but in a use-case sense the
purpose is clear.
