The D-Bus system bus offers the org.freedesktop.UPower.Wakeups interface
(provided, your GNU/Linux system runs the upowerd daemon). Maybe you
could register for the DataChanged signal. I've never tried it myself,

Another possibility could be the D-Bus system bus org.freedesktop.login1
interface. Signal PrepareForSleep seems to be emitted in both cases, the
system goes to sleep (argument true), or the system wakes up from sleep
(argument false). You could register for this signal. Again, I've never
tried it myself.

Best regards, Michael.
