Hibernation worked flawlessly on Windows 10 just before I've switched to Ubuntu (16.04), so I know for sure that the laptop (Lenovo y50) supports it.

Here's some info about the system:

$ sudo systemctl hibernate
Failed to hibernate system via logind: Sleep verb not supported
$ free -m
              total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
Mem:          15952        2953       11727         409        1271       12258
Swap:         16295           0       16295
$ cat /sys/power/state
freeze mem
$ ls /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/acpi
acpi_configfs.ko  acpi_ipmi.ko  apei  ec_sys.ko  sbshc.ko  video.ko
acpi_extlog.ko    acpi_pad.ko   dptf  nfit       sbs.ko

Tried the instructions of the docs, editing the file with the right config:


[Re-enable hibernate by default in upower]

[Re-enable hibernate by default in logind]

Also tried other locations, which I've found in other places on the internet: /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/10-vendor.d/com.ubuntu.desktop.pkla


According to this answer, disabling secure boot in the Bios setting seems to solve the problem.

  • Worked! Had to disable Secure Boot, as suggested in the link. Thanks! – Poni Feb 14 '18 at 19:22
