    You could always just ask the administrator to give you the ability to use the shutdown command.

    I can get my laptop to hibernate but only with the command "sudo hibernate". When I do so, the screen shows the progress of the image being saved, then it shuts down. On restart, the previous condition is resumed as expected. Great so far!

    However, that's the only way hibernate works. Selecting "Hibernate" from the Shutdown applet brings up a blank gray screen which remains for a minute or so, then the computer shuts down. Restart then goes through normal boot except that when I log in to the account I "hibernated" from, networking is disabled! The previous condition is not restored.

    Also, there is no "Hibernate" option from the login screen. This means that "resume" always returns without password protection.

    Specifics:

    10.04 on HP G62 migrated from WUBI with swap file.
