You know, it would be a good idea to take a step back and think about a
broader picture. Suspend and hibernate need to be mutually exclusive
with other things as well. The two examples which people have been
talking about are firmware updates (if the computer goes to sleep
while the firmware is being changed, it ends up as a brick) and battery
recharging (the CPU needs to respond quickly to temperature and charger
events).

There ought to be a general-purpose "prevent system sleep" mechanism
usable both from within the kernel and from userspace.
