How to configure ubuntu 18.04 when executing systemctl hibernate password challenge is not required.

$ id -a uid=1000(user1) gid=1000(user1) groups=1000(coka),4(adm),24(cdrom),27(sudo),30(dip),46(plugdev),116(lpadmin),126(sambashare)

The easiest way would be to add the proper entry to sudo:

username        ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD: /bin/systemctl hibernate

    Try above. Didn't work. Aug 17 '19 at 12:59
  • sudo systemctl hibernate didn't work? I wanted something similar (for suspend), so I made an alias: alias quit='sudo systemctl suspend'. Aug 17 '19 at 15:02
  • In my case, the reason it did not work was that the tutorial I followed to enable hibernation used pkexec systemctl hibernate in the keyboard shortcut. After replacing pkexec by sudo it worked flawlessly! Jul 23 at 6:05
