I am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and am hibernating my system by systemctl hibernate from my terminal(GNOME). Strange thing is, while calling poweroff, it is going straight into shutting down my whole system with no passwords asking. But systemctl hibernate is going for my passwords, asking Authentication is required to start 'hibernate.target'.

Any work around I can have my system hibernate without sudo priviledge?
