cli hibernate works but gnome panel hibernate fails


I have hibernate with suspend2 working fine from the command line. When I try to hibernate using the gnome power manager icon it doesn't recover properly. Does anyone know where the command behind the icon is stored?

gnome-power-manager calls /usr/lib/hal/scripts/hal-system-power-hibernate which in turn calls /usr/lib/hal/scripts/linux/hal-system-power-hibernate-linux. In the second script it was looking for hibernate in /usr/sbin instead of /usr/local/sbin where it actually exists. So a quick symlink solved the problem.
