100% agreement.  The "suspend on power button" is completely useless
for me.  The machine suspends automatically anyway, so I don't need to
waste the precious few buttons we have on rare operations like
"explicitly request the machine to go to sleep".

It would have been good to put more buttons on the FR, but at the very
least we should make better use of the 2 we have.
