Default Delay sleep lid close? - 05-08-2011, 03:18 AM

I am trying to reproduce the setup I have in my windows environment whereby when I close the lid the computer sleeps but when I hit the power button it hibernates.

So far as I know the power management in OSX allows very little customization so I have decided to set hibernatemode 25 as I rarely actually need to sleep, but instead am probably closing down to switch over to windows side.

It would be nice however if when closing the lid the computer took 30 seconds or so to sleep (hibernate) as that would give me the option to quickly close it while moving to a different room or just get it out of the way for a quick moment.

Does anyone have any idea how to accomplish any of this?

Both power button imediately sleeps instead of asking me and delay sleep on lid close?
