I have GuixSD installed on the Gluglug X200 and would like to issue
suspend and hibernate commands. Upon inspecting /proc/acpi however it
seems that this is not built in the current kernel that I have booted.

We currently lack the pm-utils package, which provides ‘pm-suspend’
(currently I use a script that writes to /sys/power/state as Tomáš
suggested.)  Would you like to give it a try?

I wonder if it might be better to implement suspend/resume in dmd, so
that services could easily define actions to be run before suspend and
after resume.  I guess the pm-utils approach is to put shell scripts
into /etc/pm.

I second this idea. Dmd is proper place to implement such actions as
services may benefit from performing actions before suspend or after

Pm-utils package was collection of hacks and workarounds for broken
hardware. It hopefully won't be needed anymore.

To have the list of options richer, there is also UPower
( which is designed to take care of
power management.
