Hi everyone! I know this is an age-old issue, but I tried all default solutions, and even more complicated ones, and nothing seems to work.
The problem obviously is about not having any hibernate option in the user menu in the top right corner. I already installed both gnome-tweak-tool and the alternate status gnome shell extension, but that just lead to a separate power off button, without having to hold ALT to transform suspend option into it.
The upower -d command gives me can suspend: yes (in fact suspension alone perfectly works) and can hibernate: no, and giving the sole pm-hibernate command on terminal does not work at all, everything happens too fast to read any eventual error message, but it just immediately returns to my session, after having attempted hibernation, with backlight fully on.
I'm running Fedora 17 on a laptop (ASUS U36SG), and when I used my Desktop PC the alternate status worked fine, but I'm running other distros in here and they all hibernate without any problem.
Anyone has any idea? Ask me for further informations or console commands' output if necessary.
Thanks, have a nice day!
