I wanted to avoid it. But if it's the "easy" solution I'll give it a try. What I want to accomplish is to suspend the system with a keypress (not using the menue for this). There are two reasons for not using TDE's menu for suspend: a) it's faster; b) using my script the screen isn't locked after resume and I have not found the possibility to do this by using the "Log Out ... > Suspend" TDE menu where the screen always is locked.

Thanks a lot for your help but please don't bother here. This I surely am able to do by myself.
