I have been looking at acpi-support and it looks as if in the systemd case
acpi-support hands over control of sleep, suspend, lid and powerbutton. See the
function HasLogindAndSystemd1Manager in
/usr/share/acpi-support/policy-funcs. However, the test in that function doesn't
detect elogind.

So I think this aspect of this bug should be reassigned to acpi-support. I will
try and prepare a patch and then clone the bug. acpi-support maintainers, are
you OK with that?
