MOE-Lnx has packaged xfce4-power-addtions for VL 6.0. 

Package: xfce4-power-additions-0.1-i586-1vl60.tlz
MD5: 208d70843a06aa8f7760e03e60f27461
Package Size: 5 K
Installed Size: 30 K


Code: [Select]
xfce4-power-additions: VectorLinux's power management additions for xfce4
xfce4-power-additions: This package provides the necessary tools to enable
xfce4-power-additions: hibernation using the tuxonice tools interacting with hal
xfce4-power-additions: and acpi daemons.
xfce4-power-additions: Specifically, this package adds functionality to the hibernate
xfce4-power-additions: and suspend buttons on the xfce session manager. Also adds
xfce4-power-additions: functionality for laptop users to hibernate when laptop is closed
xfce4-power-additions: AUTHOR: M0E-lnx ( LICENSE: GNU GPL

MOE-Lnx has added this:

Basically, this package provides the hal fdi rules and acpi event scripts necesary for basic hibernate functions to work on VL 6.0.
After installing this package, you should be able to hibernate from the xfce4 logout screen

Again, I must emphasize... This will only work on xfce4-4.6.0 as referenced in the slack-required, so do not expect to manually install this package and expect functionality.
One other note. This will give you functionality for the "Hibernate" button on the xfce4 logout window. The "Suspend" button is still non-functional as of yet.

Please test and report back with suggestions/issues

After testing this package please stop back here and let us know how it works for you.
