                <para><filename>systemd-suspend.service</filename> is
                a system service that is pulled in by
                <filename>suspend.target</filename> and is responsible
                for the actual system suspend. Similarly,
                <filename>systemd-hibernate.service</filename> is
                pulled in by <filename>hibernate.target</filename> to
                execute the actual hibernation. Finally,
                <filename>systemd-hybrid-sleep.service</filename> is
                pulled in by <filename>hybrid-sleep.target</filename>
                to execute hybrid hibernation with system
                suspend.</para>

                <para>Immediately before entering system suspend
                and/or hibernation
                <filename>systemd-suspend.service</filename> (and the
                other mentioned units, respectively) will run all
                executables in
                <filename>/usr/lib/systemd/system-sleep/</filename>
                and pass two arguments to them. The first argument

                <literal>suspend</literal>,
                <literal>hibernate</literal>, or
                <literal>hybrid-sleep</literal> depending on the
88 89 90
                chosen action. Immediately after leaving system
                suspend and/or hibernation the same executables are run,
                but the first argument is now

                have finished.</para>

                <para>Note that scripts or binaries dropped in

                should never be executed directly. Instead, trigger
