I'm not sure that I really understand how multiseat works. But the
suspend and hibernate functions come from HAL, and I believe are more
based on whether the user has admin rights. For general trying to
access those functions you can look at the Debugging GNOME Power Manager
If it is an admin issue, you can change how all of those permissions are
configured by using PolicyKit.
