How about this: lid close suspends, power button tap starts a clean
shutdown (after a five second opportunity to cancel, if you like)?
We'd have to define a clean shutdown first.
I think using power button to suspend is mostly a holdover from before
lid closing was reliable. I'm not sure we still have a good rationale
