Hmm. I don't recall ever seeing such a dialog. But I don't run Debian.

For me it works like all power buttons on my laptops have worked
lately - it suspends the machine.

Of course, so does just closing the lid.

The only "bug" I've seen in this area is the design bug of the XPS13
where there is no visible indication of the suspend state (ie the
traditional slowly pulsing LED showing that it's all nice and
suspended). But that seems to be intentional, if stupid. I think it's
the only real beef I have with the XPS13.
