[SOLVED] Package "pm-utils" Removed From Repos?

I can't seem to find the "pm-utils" package in the main repositories anymore. I installed it just fine on another laptop maybe 3 weeks ago. Is there another package which replaces it? I didn't see any mention of it being removed on the ArchLinux.org homepage. And then I searched the Arch Linux Package Search page as well without luck.

[root@archlinux ~]# pacman -Sys pm-utils
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 community is up to date
[root@archlinux ~]# yaourt -Sys pm-utils
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 community is up to date
aur/pm-utils-debian 1:1.4.1-1 (0) (0.00)
    Utilities and scripts for suspend and hibernate power management
aur/tlp-pmu 0.9-1 (4) (0.05)
    Advanced Power Management for Linux, with pm-utils support
aur/upower-pm-utils 0.9.23-7 (3) (0.53)
    Abstraction for enumerating power devices, listening to device events and 
    querying history and statistics
[root@archlinux ~]#

It's not even in the Arch User Repository! The only thing close is the outdated and Debian-patched version of "pm-utils". So what package should everyone be using now?

Search the wiki. It explains why it is gone.

pm-utils is outdated and breaks with systemd, you should be using systemd's suspension/hibernation utilities instead, which is noted here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pm-utils there's not going to be a mention since it isn't a core package of anything

Thank you, but I wasn't asking why it's gone. I was just noting that it was removed from the repos and wondered what I should use for my hibernation script I use at night while I fall asleep watching old shows.

Thank you. I am still not super familiar with systemd yet. But I did find my answer in a reply to a totally different topic on a totally different post back from when systemd was first introduced. All I have to do is change

pm-suspend

to read

systemctl suspend

and it's as easy as that.
