ChromeOS has a more or less standard userspace I believe.

There was an issue with suspend being blocked (so the machine not suspending)
if audio was playing because of one the suspend callbacks returning
an error. I believe the ignore_suspend settings where added as a workaround
for that and that is no longer a problem.
