DBus examples?

I am trying to learn a bit about dbus on my Fedora Core 5 laptop.

All of the python examples I find on google fail to "compile" for
one reason or another, I guess the interface is still in flux...

Does anyone know of a source for a few simple examples that can
get me started?

Does anyone know if a suitably privileged user can send a
message via the dbus that will suspend/hibernate the laptop?

Hello, First of all, does anyone know whether dbus will allow be to do 3 things: 1. query whether or not there is a dvd drive. 2. query whether or not there is a blank disc in it. 3. query what it's capacity is. If I'm barking up the wrong tree, what should I be considering instead ?

Hi, Im using DBUS in my application to detect HW hotplugging and removal, which works great except for one thing: The code executed when a hotplugging is detected does not raise exceptions, even if my code contains errors.
