I have just tested... Hybernation and suspension both to disk and to RAM works
well without hal (both from the KDE menu). Auto-mounting also works well 
(if you implement it with udev rules you do not need any additional services running). 
K3B works well and auto-detects the media. Ejecting CD-ROM works well.

What else should hal do?
