Battery critical settings in Gnome

There used to be a setting in Gnome Power Management Preferences which would change the action when the battery was critically low: suspend, hibernate, shutdown.

If you have looked for such a setting today in Gnome 3, because, for example, your laptop doesn't come out of suspend, you won't have found one.

You might have looked on the internet for how to change the setting, and found advice to use dconf-editor and browse to org > gnome > settings-daemon > plugins > power, only to find that there is no setting for critical battery action any more.

If you are lucky, you might have put the right search terms into the search engine of your choice and found that you now have to edit /etc/UPower/UPower.conf.
