Since the time I've moved to Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon, I'v never had the hibernate option.

I tried following instructions at http://www.linuxandlife.com/2012/06/how-to-enable-hibernation-in-linux-mint.html but to no avail,even trying to change the Re-enable to enable but with no luck.

I can see there already is a com.ubuntu.enable-hibernate.pkls in /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/ (it's a pkl*s* not a pkl*a*)

For the record, when I do sudo pm-hibernate it just makes the system hang.

This is what dconf editor currently shows: http://i43.tinypic.com/ndtzec.png

Would really appreciate some help on this, pls.

Do you have a swap partition? How large is it? How much RAM do you have? –  terdon Oct 10 '13 at 17:05
