Not in general.

In particular, wakeup devices that would be set up for S5 need not be
set up for that. Also the mechanism by which transitions to S5 are
entered is different from the reboot one, at least from the OS
perspective.

No, it doesn't follow.

Yes, it does. Maybe it shouldn't?

It may not hurt to call _PTS before reboot too, but is it guaranteed
to work across the board on all systems everywhere?

What exactly would it break?

Even if that makes a little sense?

I would just use one notifier.

Thanks,
