Pause suspend while playing music (enhancement/bug)

Pause suspend while playing music (enhancement/bug)

This was tested on Fedora34/Gnome but could be applicable elsewhere in Linux. I'd like to request pausing suspend while Spotify is actively playing music. Currently Gnome doesn't know that Spotify is active because Spotify doesn't issue Inhibit() request according to Gnome documentation here: https://wiki.gnome.org/Attic/GnomePowerManager/FAQ#How_do_I_make_my_application_stop_the_computer_au...

which leads to computer going to sleep.

 

It would be great if Spotify could issue those requests because the only other options are to wrap Spotify into some sort of an anti-suspend script or disabling suspend entirely. Both not good.

I try the same in Fedora 36, any solution yet...

I take a seat here to see if there is some evolution.
