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.
