Thanks for not answering, and not updating the API doc, and me having  
to dig through Sugar patches to find out how this works.

I updated the doc:
	Called when the laptop is about to shutdown, reboot, or suspend. The  
activity must save its state in the datastore.
Apparently this does not send a reason for having to sync - IMHO  
suspend is not as severe a reason as impending shutdown/reboot so an  
activity might want to choose to not save on suspend if suspends are  
as frequent as we anticipate.
