    Question Implementing manual sleep mode ?

    Hi.
    The rightmost two icons at top do the same -the arrow down and the on/off symbol- (Why two?) How to add a 'go to sleep' option somewhere there ?

    The settings/tweaks are set for sleep at laptop lid closing; and to sleep at power button press; but the latter is not happening. Just the screen goes black, but the laptop gets hot anyway, as being fully on.
    Closing the lid on the laptop used on desk is undesired as deteriorates the hinged wiring in few months; as already happened.

    sorry busy - my copy paste did not work right

    sudo apt install gnome-shell-extension-suspend-button

    try that - a space between the install and gnome is needed from my notes. sorry about that

    Thank you.
    Went well on the terminal, but does not show as selection for the on/off icon.

    Thanks.
    Tweak tool was already installed.

    Tweaks ---> 'Extensions' does not have the 'suspend' selection; 'Power' has it, and was already on.

    try restarting your computer
    extensions suspend button. may check the settings nest to the button - i believe there is something to the left of the button.


    it shows up in my extension list - have maybe four listed.

    Thanks, bodhin2. Good guidance.
    Restarting resulted in the 'suspend' option shown.
