Suspend, hibernate and mount stopped working as a regular user.
This happened after a recent world upgrade. I am currently using kde 4.8.4.
I can however suspend, hibernate using the pm-utils as root. Google has
lead me to believe this has something to do with consolekit. I found this
thread  which is more or less what I am experiencing (I can't mount
too). Running that dbus command gives me the same output mentioned

Error org.freedesktop.UPower.GeneralError: not authorized
However I am not sure how to solve this. I don't have an .xinitrc file in my
home folder. So I looked at /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/, I tried removing
the file called 90-consolekit, which didn't help.
Anybody has any idea how to proceed in debugging this problem? any use
full output I can post?I have this feeling that I missed some important
piece of information from my portage log. I skimmed over summary.log
nothing caught my attention.
