How can I hibernate on Ubuntu 16.04?

In this post I will show how to Enable Hibernate in Ubuntu.

In the previous posts I had shown How to...

First check if hibernate works on your system or not using below Command in Terminal.

sudo pm-hibernate

If it does not work, check your swap size is grater than or equal to your system RAM.
To add Hibernate option to the settings menu, you can create a configuration file.
Open a terminal and run below command.

sudo nano /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/com.ubuntu.enable-hibernate.pkla

It will open nano with an empty file. Copy and paste the below lines into the nano window.

[Re-enable hibernate by default in upower]

[Re-enable hibernate by default in logind]

Then save the file and restart the system. Then you will find the menu as shown in the above out put.
