Xfce Python Dbus

I run Xfce (Arch Linux) and I'm trying to control the power manager. I already declared the power manager but what are the methods to hibernate it and control it? Here's my code so far:

from pydbus import SessionBus
bus = SessionBus
power = bus.get('org.xfce.PowerManager', '/org/xfce/PowerManager')

And it's not working. I've tried googling it, looking at docs, and guessing every method I could think of.


As Dartmouth mentioned, you need to find xfce4-power-manager's exposed methods. For that DFeet (a D-Bus debugger) will help you:

enter image description here

Then you can call the method (via terminal):

dbus-send --session --print-reply \
--dest=org.freedesktop.PowerManagement \
/org/freedesktop/PowerManagement \
