ASCII RC with Cinnamon - power management

Dear Developers, dear Community,
Devuan ASCII RC with Cinnamon is my perfect solution for graphical workstations or servers - I couldn't wish anything more.
It's more of a problem on laptops where a well working power management is crucial.
The few problematic points are:

- "Lid-Close" action doesn't work - it never suspends the system whatever I configure
- Battery capacity is just 1 hour (which should be at least 3 hours) (Dell Latitude E7450)
- OpenVPN installs, signals problems at start, but works well otherwise.
- With Lightdm the power-action menus on the login-screen are greyed. Works well with lxdm.

Tested on HP Elitebook 8460p and Dell Latitude E7450
Please note that power-management works correctly when pressing the "Power" button.
In any other way Cinnamon on ASCII is a real beauty!
Thank you and bravo!

There is a discussion about this somewhere around here.  (Edit: here it is).  I borrowed some ideas from the conversation and implemented them in my own project if you need a fallback; it's just a few acpi configs.

Check running processes?  "3 hours" compared to which other system?

- OpenVPN installs, signals problems at start, but works well otherwise.

Posting the errors will be useful.
