disabling suspend

Hey all,

I spent the past 15 minutes digging through the wiki and devel threads 
from the past 3 months and I couldn't find out how to stop an XO from 
suspending except for the manual "touch /etc/ohm/inhibit-idle-suspend" 
that Chris told me about the other day.

Could someone please explain the necessary D-BUS command so it can be 
added to appropriate places (e.g. w.l.o, Activity Handbook, Sugar 
Almanac) where people can find the information?

This is really a feature that should be added to the Sugar Control Panel 
but since that's not going to be initially available for G1G1 2008 users 
I would suggest that we at least come up with an activity that allows 
people (*cough* "donors" *cough*) to easily enable / disable the suspend 
mode when needed (e.g. watching movies with mplayer on airplanes).

By the way, regardless of the endless BS "reply to" discussion last week 
I would prefer it if people actually CC'ed me on any replies.
