Status of klaptop

Hello all,

Klaptop is no more working on my laptop with newer distributions. Both suspend 
and hibernate just lock.

I guess that acpi is no more accessed the same way. On Debian 9 I was able to 
use s2ram and s2disk, but could not test anything under TDE because I could 
not access teh repositories to install.

The latest SUSE does not have these utilities anymore, it uses systemctl 
instead. I was able to get Klaptop to work by 
replacing /opt/bin/klaptop_acpi_helper with a script running systemctl 
suspend. Seems to work so far but it's rather a hack.

Shouldn't klaptop be brought to an up-to-date level? Or provide some way of 
editing the suspend/hibernate commands depending on the machine?

Would this be a big task?
