What does that exactly mean (especially for non GTK-based applications
like mine that cannot expect some GTK magic)?

Say for example I have an editor with has a blinking cursor. The GUI
library internally uses select with a timer as main event loop. Does
above statement mean, that my application is still running and select
still lopping and timer can run out and the cursor still blinks while I
put the cover on the device? I always assumed that it goes in some kind
of hibernate mode where machine state is (nearly) completely frozen, but
your statement sounds like it just switches of some stuff of while CPU
is still running?

How can I work around this? Do I need to catch DBus events to get
informed that I have to go in some application specific low power mode?
