Hibernate in Fedora
I spent time yesterday making HybridSleep and Hibernate work in Fedora 32 on a ThinkPad X1 Carbon with an encrypted disk.
I don’t ever plan to manually use hybrid sleep or hibernate; I’d instead just lock my screen or close the laptop lid. So why even bother to have them work?
It’s because hybrid sleep and hibernate are useful to have when battery power runs out. You’ll find in
/etc/UPower/UPower.conf that the computer attempts hybrid sleep, hibernate, and a full shutdown, in this order, when the battery runs out. If you don’t want a full shutdown and to lose working state when this happens, you should want a working hibernate or hybrid sleep.
$ cat /etc/UPower/UPower.conf | tail -n 3 If HybridSleep isn't available, Hibernate will be used If Hibernate isn't available, PowerOff will be used CriticalPowerAction=HybridSleep
