Blue or green is quite the same for that no? Does it make a real
difference to switch both?

If you prefer a such window, do you want some fadding effect on the
background too? The current version is a normal window, you can switch
it, move it, etc. Without the titlebar it would be a fixed position...

I agree that the 3/3 distinction is not ideal. The 3 categories kind of
make sense, maybe we should give a try to know what it looks like

4 and 2 is kind of weird. If we do that we should maybe use one icon for
sleep/hibernate and make the difference using a modifier like windows do
