IMO, we should put the system to sleep by sending a
power-saving/wakeup-latency goal and a set of waking events (e.g.,
keystroke, mouse movement, LAN activity) to the root device_t using
drvctl.  To put any smaller set of devices to sleep, send the goal &
wake events to some subtree.

FWIW, the sleep states that ACPI names are not sufficient even to
describe all of the potential sleep states of ACPI hardware.  I have a
laptop that's perfectly capable of an "S3-like" sleep, but the ACPI BIOS
doesn't support S3, and the HDD is not formatted properly for the S4
