The polkit docs (you have to look at the source code) and configuration
system are terrible and difficult to monitor to the point that I am
switching all the code I need to the simple straight forward,
transparent and more secure sudo. Atleast you get config files on arch
though, you don't on Fedora (polkits home).

Have you checked if suspend is still enabled with pkaction.


 Why not do something good every day and install BOINC.
