I do fore-see a reduction in the number of cases where pm-utils
will be NEEDED, but the integration of the "suspend" functionality
(esp multithreaded hibernate, compression, encryption) is a long
way out there. Not likely in the OSS 13.x or even 14.x cylce.

I can only say with suspend my machine does not suspend properly, it has
issues after resuming. With systemd it works flawlessly.

What do you mean with encryption? I have /home on an encrypted partition
and suspending with systemd works fine, at least I did not see and
problems, resuming worked fine. Using suspend / s2ram my Acer laptop
does not resume properly...

The mentioned compression and encryption are for "hibernate" state.
The hibernate-resume-file (most times stored in the swap-partion)
can be compressed and / or encrypted with a extra pass-phrase.

Most times s2ram/s2disk/s2hybrid is needed, is on older and / or
buggy hardware, where no in kernel support is available.

So, I can only guess, your Acer laptop is less than 5 year old,
has in linux kernel support for suspend and hibernate,
or even works on uefi hardware.

If you look at the README file from the suspend package, you can
see that using s2ram/s2disk/s2hybrid is NOT for such hardware.
