Hi .

Well thou not using a laptop i am using systemd and the latest 
kde 4.9.3   . I use the sleep button on the keyboard (logotech internet
navigator usb)  it all works perfectly  apart from a complaint about
shutting down 3 of the 4 CPU cores  prior to full shutdown

Reboot is almost instant working after approximately 3 seconds
