LM19.1 - Hibernate requires authentication

Post by Ian J. » Sat Feb 09, 2019 11:22 am


Hopefully this isn't a hard problem. I've just upgraded to LM 19.1, and hibernate has been an issue (not unexpected). I'm using a two year old laptop (Acer), with a swap partition, and I'm not using LVM.

I've managed to get to the point where

Code: Select all

systemctl hibernate
works, but only with a request to enter my password. The output is something like:

Code: Select all

user@pc:~$ systemctl hibernate
Failed to hibernate system via logind: Access denied
Failed to start hibernate.target: Access denied
See system logs and 'systemctl status hibernate.target' for details.
user@pc:~$ systemctl status hibernate.target
● hibernate.target - Hibernate
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/hibernate.target; static; vendor preset: 
   Active: inactive (dead)
     Docs: man:systemd.special(7)
Once the password is entered and authenticated the system does hibernate and it does resume, although it's not asking for my password to get back in like it used to.

Any ideas?
